Re: Immunosuppressive medication
Thanks, but they aren't going to put me on those medications (immunosuppressive). The last doctor I saw said if you have a normal ESR and RF, it doesn't matter if your ANA is positive, it means nothing.
However, he did put me on mobic for arthritic pain and it was a wonder drug the first week and I like it but I am going to have to have something stronger, probably steriodal, I'm crashing now, I am going to ask him next week, or at least increase my dosage of mobic because I had to take 4 aleve today to keep going.
If an anti-inflammatory medication gives me the energy I need to move, then I don't care what that stupid ESR and RF blood test says, my symptoms are telling me it is an inflammatory issue.
They called and said my Vit B-12 and Vit D is low and I've started a prescription for that and have to take shots I don't want. I know that's a good reason to feel so tired but I know it's not the culprit for 13 years. I can't even believe I was finally told a reason why I could feel tired, I usually never get any answers.
And I can't even begin to believe an ANA being so high especially if repeated with the same results even with a normal ESR should mean nothing, if you have the apparent symptoms of an autoimmune disease.
