The phone call you dread and anticipate at the same time.

So Wednesday I went to the dr. and was tested for RA and some other things. They called this afternoon and the test is high for rheumatoid arthritis.
They are setting me up with an appointment with a rheumatologist.
(Not sure about that spelling and don't wanna check.)

So If anyone has any info on this and would like to share it would be appreciated.
My cholesterol is also high so I guess I'll be going on that diet after all.


because every post should have a pic.
i love frogs....

I was afflicted with RA for a while and guess I still have it to a certain extent. It was caused by a much worse problem. I have autoimmune hepatitus. My immune system started attacking different parts of me. My joints were the 2nd noticeable thing attacked. I was on all kinds of meds until my liver was attacked and then I was finally diagnosed with a.hep. Now I'm on a low dose of steroids for life to suppress my immune system. It has taken away my RA symptoms. I hope you aren't THAT bad. It's no fun. Good luck.

Hang in there girl! I swear I started falling apart when I turned 40. I don't have any experience with RA but I have had vertigo, HBP, Depression, Foot issues and surgery for it, then all the girly problems that can arise...ugh! I will be your cheerleader on that diet you may have to go on!
