Turns out I don’t have RA, but my Sjorgens is giving me RA symptoms. I guess its good I only have Sjorgens but still sucks to be going through this. Just wanted to share.

      I've wondered for a while if my RA diagnosis was incorrect. Most of symptoms seem to be linked more to SJS than RA.

      I think most doctors truly know what we have. I have a positive Rh factor which is usually a marker for RA but it’s never mentioned. I was diagnosed with Sjögren’s 13 years ago but then another doctor said I didn’t have it and threw my medication away. It turns out that I do have it but wasn’t treated until a hear and a half ago. That was just enough time to develop complications. I’m an RN but we are not taught about autoimmune diseases except for a three line blurb in the textbook.

      So many of these ailments “mimic” each other. It’s sooooo frustrating!

      It really is beyond difficult to have faith in your body when it feels like it’s just broken & it feels like there’s always something else wrong or going wrong. I hope your cardiologist appointment goes well though despite all of the sucky stuff

      Sucks when your symptoms mimic other crap…. I have over the years developed secondary complications. I now have fibromyalgia and degenerative arthritis… last year I was diagnosed with lymphedema and insulin resistance…. Tomorrow I have an appointment with a cardiologist. I’m fed up with so much stuff being wrong with me. I’ve become tired and exhausted and overwhelmed.
