I am going to make an appointment for next week to see a new internist. You know, I asked the last one to do a kidney profile, UA and a sed rate and he refused to do the sed rate. He said that too many things can elevate it and it doesn't mean much. When I see this new doc, I am going to have him repeat my ANA and do a sed rate. I am going on the 8th week since the fevers started and have improved, but I am still not quite right. A few things that I didn't mention but have been jarred to memory by reading everyones posts is that almost every night I wake up and can't move/have NO feeling in one or both arm/hand. This also happened 5 years ago. I have to manuelly pick up the arm and start shaking it. I don't know, maybe thats normal but hubby sure never gets this! When this began this time, I did have a huge canker sore, but only one. 5 years ago, it took many months for my ANA to come down. Initially they were in the 700s, then like 4 months later in the 300s and the last check I had 8 months after they were in the 100s. It would take a week for these test to come in before so I will start there. My only remaining complaints are weakness, chest pain (today only, short in duration) BAD heartburn, flank area pain is still there too, but now only on the left side and appears to be related to the heartburn somehow. 2 months ago I walked 2 miles a day with my golden retrievers and I still don't dare yet. Thanks for the input!
