Hi, I'm new

Postby Tapestry » Fri Nov 13, 2009 9:17 pm

my name is Lorraine and i would like to introduce myself. I have recently been diagnosed with FM although I know I have had this for years.I have been quite ill since April when with all the usual symptoms i developed a burning rash from head to toe which kept coming back. I have seen a rheumatoligist and started on plaquenil and amytriptilline.What I am confused about is testing positive for ANA and Anti Ro, can anyone help with this. Its so amazing to find all this support and advice and that there are so many people who also suffer in silence like I have.Over the years I have had to give up work(midwife) and struggle along with kids etc and Ihave all these angry feelings why no-one ever listened or helped over the years. Thanx for just existing. :needhug:

It sounds like you have autoimmune/inflammatory condition along with the Fibro - it's very common for rheum patients to also have Fibro. The positive blood tests and rash would be connected to the autoimmune/inflammatory condition and the Plaquenil is for that (as you probably know!).

Hi and welcome to the forum. As Linz says it sounds like you have something else going on as well as FM which would need checking. It could be nothing and another test a few weeks on could tell you if it's sorted itself or not.

Don't let your gp tell you it's the fm causing it cos it isn't :hugs:
