Blood tests are back!

Feb 18, 2016 5:38 PM

My red blood cell count is low, and my autoimmune and thyroid panel was abnormal. I'm scheduling a visit with a rheumatologist tomorrow.
I'm not sure but it seems like I probably have lupus with my CRPS which sucks but at least it'll be officially diagnosed soon. Thank you for all the support everyone! I have been stuck in bed most of the time and in so much pain it's crazy, but having everyone here has been nice.

In what way was your thyroid abnormal? Hypo or hyper? Good luck with the rheumatologist!

I get the paperwork tomorrow, I'll check! I'm so tired of talking to new doctors and explaining my story and symptoms, but hopefully it helps!

You are in my prayers also. But do not claim Lupus if there has been no official diagnosis of that. Think positive Megan.

Thank you all, I'm so excited to know what's going on in my body already! Sorry I don't mean to claim lupus but it is what the blood tests and symptoms point towards and since not everyone knows that I figured I'd mention it.
