Hi Sarah! I told you I’d give an update- I had my echo and portable ekg in early April. I get the results next week. I was told that they would call me immediately if there was anything wrong. No calls, so that’s promising. One unexpected thing they did fine was an elevated ANA test result, which indicates that I have an autoimmune disease such as lupus. They are now running further tests which has of course gave me more anxiety, but I feel like I am coping better. Hope you are well.

Heyyyy thanks for letting me know :) im glad the wait is nearly finally over for u. What is a ANA?
im at the docs to 'discuss' my results of my nerve tests i had just before easter so im hoping to find out why i hurt so much.

Im sick of hurting. Im gunna talk to them abt some other stuff too. Ive started to get sharp pains in my head and temples. Under my eyes across my nose cheek bones and it hurts to touch like ive got a bruise coming or something. I geniuenly believe its not anxiety and ive got something wrong lol. Ive been told it cud be my sinuses. But will just have to wait till wednesday i guess :(

Hope ur well as always keep me posted x x x

ANA is anti nuclear antibodies. It’s the cells your body produces that mistakenly attack healthy tissue. I was reading that flare ups can cause neurological symptoms including anxiety and depression. Perhaps that was where the sudden uncontrollable anxiety came from a few month back 🙁

Let me know what happens with your nerve tests. A lot of people with autoimmune disease develop nerve pain and fibromyalgia too.

Heyyyy been to doctors today.. i have carpal tunnel syndrome. I have had to order a splint and take naproxen for a month. I asked if its supposed to be just in the wrist (bcoz i get it everywhere) nd he sed if i have nerve problems in 1 place i will probs find.i get it in others too... its started in my siatic (however its spelt haha) nerve today boooo.
Ive got to go bk in a month if this plan doesnt help
So we shall see. The doc i saw wasnt as informative as the lady that refered me...
Regarding all the other stuff ive felt slightly better these past few days. I think my sinuses r unblocking as now i have a full blown cold. I still feel shit but not as stressed out as normal
We shall see what the next month brings.
Keep me posted with you :) speak soon xx

Ahh carpal tunnel drove me crazy I had it while I was pregnant! It ran about halfway up my arms but nowhere else and went away about a month after I had my daughter. So it sounds like you have some other nerve issues going on? I hope the naproxen helps some. I think we also call the nerve pain fibromyalgia? Got my echo and holter results today. Both normal!! So thankful and happy.
