They took a BUNCH of tests. 10 viles to be exact. I thought she was a awesome doc. She listen to all of my symptoms. SHe told me that Livedo Reticularis can be a condition just by itself, but it is also caused by other things. That was one of my worries, was that she would brush it off. I told her my ANA came back fine, but she said she is rerunning it b.c u can never tell. She said she runs an exstensive blood panel (to be as thorough as possible)
Bad part is I dont go back for 4 weeks!! UGHHH my appt is 11/24 to go over all results,
So all in all I was happy with the appt. I was scared I was gonna get a doc that didnt listen and didnt run anymore test b/c of my ana.
Tara....sounds positive overall. I know how hard it is to wait. Just relax it will be here sooner than you think. My ana is sometimes negative....not the best predictor anyway. I'm glad she ran lots of tests. Keep us posted.
Tara, I had to wait a month, too, for all tests to come back to my "good rheumie" (that's as opposed to all the drs. I saw previously ). Good drs. go about it properly, is what I mean. Time will probably pass faster than you expect. I'm glad your initial office visit was positive & that the rheumie spoke sense to you. Stay in touch & hang in there, OK? Sending best wishes, Vee
