LUPUS: Wrong ddiagnosis!

By April 12, 2012 - 7:37pm

A few months ago my regular family doctor gave me a reall scare, telling me I had LUPUS! I made an appointment with a RHEUMATOLOGIST who performed very specific tests and I was told that I did not have LUPUS but had a high score in SJOGREN'S SYNDROME and also have FIBERMYALGIA, which causes me constant pain! I was happy to hear the new diagnosis and water aerobics is really helping the FIBERMYALGIA

Hi Finncess1

Great news, although Fibromyalgia is not an easy condition to live with.

Make sure the doctor who misdiagnosed you with a rather serious condition like Lupus knows his error.

Best to you,

Hi Finncess1,

Welcome to  EmpowHER.  Thanks for sharing your story with us. Glad it wasn't LUPUS. Am sure this information will help others.
