From this study (2 days ago):
I went to a Rheumatologist and he said I have Hashimoto disease and said its not serious enough to take meds for. The test is - Thyroid Peroxidase Antiboties - my number is 363. It says that is should be <9. I was wondering if these medications I am on could be causing abnormal reading. I do have severe inflammation due to serious injuries.

From this study (5 days ago):
Had an emergency appendectomy in February with complications.... have lived with joint, muscle pain most of my adult life. Constant stomach problems from a young wage. IBS, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite. Feel like I am basically a failure, unable to keep a permanent job. Marriage is on verge of divorce, my family thinks it's all in my head, and that I cause this or even like to be a I. That I do it for attention, or mainly bc I am not responsible. I do not like discussing with family bc I feel misunderstood & like a. Broken record. I want to participate in life , if I don't I am criticized , if I do I pay the price. With either "pain" or comments like " well you did this "
I feel scared, alone , but mostly hurt all over, including heart ache!!
It's very confusing and will definitely make you think you are crazy at times.
Was told yesterday I had fibromyalgia & vasculitis . Going to have blood test tomorrow .
