I had my Rheumatologist appointment this morning.
He told me that I don't have lupus.
He said something about mathematical odds like 1 in 20 people who don't have lupus will test positive for it and that only 1 in 2000 people in the general population have it. Some how that adds up to the fact that my thyroid problems and hormone modification due to clom.id probably triggered the test to be positive. He did some more bloodwork (these vampires these days, I tell ya) and some x-rays of my hands and feet (not sure about this one, something about early changes from lupus) and told me if these things said different from his original assumptions he will let me know.
I swear I was trying to pay attention to all the details, but once the words "not lupus" came out, my brain kind of shut off from the relief.
So let's all have a little party now, shall we? I'll be bringing the spinach artichoke dip. This is the first good news I've had in a while!
Side Note: I have my first official RE appointment scheduled for April, 30th.
Second Side Note: I'm thinking about squeezing in an IUI or two in the meantime, just for good measure. Opinions?
