Hi just having a moan, had my blood tests results back today and they were negative.

I am just so fed up of feeling ill all the time and sleeping away my life. I know everyone has the same or more problems I just wanted to let of steam.

Hi Kirsty :)

You may have told me but were those test that a rheumy ordered or do you have an upcoming appointment?

Dont give up, the fact you have had positive results in the past carries a lot of weight, especially in view of your problems. Bloods can fluctuate. Make sure you get a referral to a rheumie. Keep a note of your symptoms and a record of your blood test results, this can really make a difference.

Take care

yeah don't give up Kirsty. Mine came back normal for years and I was sooo ill. I slept for 18hrs a day at my worst but even without meds or any treatment /recognition it passed with rest...

You musn't give up. The advice here is spot on IMHO write down what is happening, even with negative bloods the specialist will see a pattern if it's there

kirsty,
Hi chin up, labs are not everything. I had my sle done with a biospy and my labs have not shown sle, I even have trouble with it showing infections sometimes. Just remember if it sounds like a duck, it walks like a duck, and acts like a duck, it has to be a duck. Don't give up they will find out what is going on with you.
