My story:After working for a financial company as a administrator and got very ill, I was medically boarded, we had to find an alternative income as my husband was also retrenched we started a small petshop from home. Two years ago I started getting these seizures I was rushed off to hospital. They thought I had a heart attack I was then told that it's irrithmea the seizures continued some times twice a week I would find myself in hospital. Every Dr.had a different finding but then I was treated for more then a year for depression, bipolar 2 and two kinds of epilepsy then I was referred to a neurologist who did two Lumpur punches 6 months a part a whole lot of blood test then told me I have RA with a factor showing up in my blood. The seizure still on continued I went for scio treatment and a full brain function test was done then I got told due to the RA the sirculation in the hemisphere of the brain is not working properly and that they stopped a stroke. I find that this illness apart from the pain everyday attacks my immune system more and more everyday, I just recovered from a cold who turned in to brongitis and pneumonia. On my last Scio treatment I was also informed that osteoclerosis in the jaw and the beginning of osteoporosis has been found today is the 29th of June 2015 saw a rheumatologist today for the first time and when I told her about the seizures she told me RA does not cause seizures, she did a clinical examination and told me that I have FM and not RA to me this sounds like a horror movie I have been dealing with the fact for the past year and a half that I have RA and now this. It's just to much to cope with.
Most days I find myself in a lot of pain in the hips shoulders and arms, every day it's something new some new allergy or a new pain. It's worse when fatigue sets in as well. I am at the stage of being tired of being tired.
