    Pain

    I've haven't been feeling well for over a year. I've been to multiple doctors. I have a high crp level, abnormal brain MRI, negative ANA blood test. My symptoms include fatigue, muscle soreness, headaches, and hip pain. I have appointment with a rheumatologist in the next month. But, I feel like I'm going insane not knowing what is going on.

    Thanks

    RE: Pain

    Hi,
    I am so sorry you are going through this!
    Ask your doctor to check for Lime antibodies. Also, insist to check for dsDNA (double stranded DNA). Many people test negative for ANA, then positive for dsDNA. Although Lupus is not an encouraging diagnosis, a proper course of medication, such as Plaquenil, can significantly lessen the symptoms and bring back adequate quality of life.
    Hope this helps! Hang in there!
