LUPUS? NO MED. INSURANCE, Needing some advise!
Hi, over the years I have had lots of tests. Including ANA tests. Most recently in 2008. But w/out insurance I have not had any follow ups since my results.
Here is a little history:
Chronic ear infections as a child.
Mono @ 9yrs. old
Chronic bone pain my whole life. Crippling pain. Usually at night, but not always. Runs in family. Father had this pain, and 2 of my 3 children have this pain. Usually tappers off in 20's.
Rheumatic Fever at the age of 33.
Sore Gums off & on.
Painful joints now. Numbness in my arms & legs for no reason. Sometimes so numb I can't walk. Painful hips, elbows and back. Poor vision and really bad night vision. Skin cancer diagnosis in 2010 for multiple areas.
Heart murmur with some thickening.
Difficulty breathing even on a hard walk.
Blood work in 2008 by dermatologist.
