Suspected Autoimmune Disorder..
I presented at the doctor, with muscle aches, swollen hands and feed, my the joints on my fingers and toes appear bruised, migraines (Which lead to nausea/vomitting), severe fatigue, weight loss. I was given antibiotics for suspected infection, and given a blood test.
My noteable test results were:
* My Anti-Nuclear Antibody titre: 640
* C Reactive Protein: 8.6 mg/L
* WCC: 14.1
* Neutrophils: 9.3
* Monocytes: 1.3
I have NO idea what any of this means really, however I had to have further blood tests done and I have to ring tomorrow to make an appointment with a Rheumatologist(sp?).
Any insight into what this test results, mixed with my symptoms, could possibly mean for me, would help me a lot. Of course I don't expect anyone to "Doctor Google" me, but I think I would just like some peace of mind. Although at this stage, I am just relieved it's not all in my head, like everyone had tried to tell me it was!
