For Those Who See Rheumatologists

I ask this question to those who may have experience in this since you probably had the same tests done. So my journey started back in 2016 with constant fatigue and after a year of being told I had anxiety/post partum, a ER doctor ran blood tests for autoimmune diseases. It came back that I was ANA positive and my sedimentation rate was slightly elevated at 22.

You mentioned some autoimmune but have you been checked into hashitmotos {thyroid}, MS. there is also an autoimmune that attacks the pituitary.

@A MyFibroTeam Member. It would make so much sense if it was autoimmune. If you check out the extremely long list of symptoms with Fibro, they are the same as with autoimmune diseases. In fact many people are misdiagnosed with a autoimmune disease or Fibro all the time.
