so yesterday after work, i had some sharp pain in my side. i couldn't tell if it was an ovarian cyst or a kidney stone. it turns out it was a cyst. while i was at my gp, i told him about the yo-yoing that i've been going through with the specialists. he told me that they is clearing something wrong and he said with out saying that it's pointing toward lupus and ra. however, he told me that since the drugs they use to treat lupus are chemo drugs, i'd probably be more sick from the medication than how sick that i'm currently. so he said its pretty much a waiting game and that the doctors don't want me to be put on the medication until its absolutely necessary. so it felt good to know that something abnormal is going on and i'm not crazy. but it's a little disappointing that i have the pre-disease or mild disease that they can't justify treating because we've had no advancement in the treatment in over 50 years!
