    My name is Lindsay. I am in a constant battle to keep my weight up now and I lose clumps of my hair everyday. I’m scared to even brush my hair now. My back constantly hurts and my stomach too. I have arthritis in my hips and knees. My doctors told me they think I have hyperthyroidism and they also told me they have no clue what’s wrong with my stomach. I used to be 169 lbs and in under a month I am down to 131 lbs and fighting to keep and food down and to keep my weight regulated. All of this and some childhood trauma have given me depression and anxiety. I don’t like talking about my issues because I feel like I am putting my problems on people but I have learned on this app that it is okay to talk about it. Thank you for stopping to read this.

    Need Advice

    After being diagnosed as SLE suspect and then UCTD, I got a new diagnosis now, overlapped syndrome. I was positive with RA tests that were not tested 5 years ago and got an SLE symptoms and lab positive too so it was said that I have both RA and SLE. I also have autoimmune hyperthyroidism. It was the first diagnosis I had 5 years ago.

    I am honestly overwhelmed now. I also have infections for more than a month (lungs and kidney) now and in another round of antibiotics.

    Is anyone here have the same diagnosis overlap syndrome? How did you cope with it?

    Well....it has been a wild ride this weekend. My grand baby has a temp of 101.3 (he went to the hospital yesterday with a fever of 106.8...very scary). My daughter has a temp of 103. And I have a temp of 100. Now I get low grade temps from time to time on the regular. Not sure why....but it is all just a part of my many random issues. Ugh! Anyway....I am just trying my best to relax and let all this mess pass. I am praying I get to work on Monday. 🤦‍♀️ #Workingwhilechronicillyill #Sarcoidosis #Migraine #PCOS #Hyperthyroidism

    This last month has been a roller coaster ride for me. My RA has been giving me fits and to top it off my electrolytes keep getting out of wack. I’m on Simponi infusions every 8 weeks, have hyperthyroidism, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, PsA, thrombocytopenia and heart problems. I’m fused from C-3 to T-1 and L3 to S1. I need a hip replacement and that is not possible due to my severe osteoporosis so my rheumatologist is starting me on Prolea my next infusion at the end of June. I just had an injection in my left hip to try to help alleviate some of the pain but the general anesthesia caused all kinds of havoc with my heart and a trip to the ER for chest pain. I have had two stints placed and still have a 50 % blockage in the LAD that they did not stint because it needed to be @ 70%. I’ve finally been able to reverse the electrolyte imbalance which helped with some of the spasms and bone pain but the anxiety I have from all the above is going to throw me completely over the edge lately. I have two bad heart valves. I’m so tired of being sick and tied and not being able to do the things I want to do. I’m a retired ER/ ICU nurse so idle time has never been in my vocabulary. I’m going insane here. I haven’t posted in a long time I’m more of a reader and do pray for each of you daily. I just feel so lonely here. Just needed to vent that’s all. I appreciate your time if you read this far 😁 #Anxiety

    Relapsing with Grave's Disease

    Hi! To start off, this is my first post, so I hope I do well. I got diagnosed with Grave’s Disease in Dec of 2020. Being 17 with a chronic disease isn’t really fun, lol. But recently, I learned that I relapsed – for the past month, my medication got altered because I was suffering from hypothyroidism, and to hear that I have hyperthyroidism again and relearning how to live with these symptoms have made me extremely depressed and anxious. Emotionally and Physically, I’m exhausted, I’m just so tired of readjusting my standard of living (since I was finally starting to get some sense of a grip of a deem able schedule with school) while seemingly having new symptoms pop up. Mentally, I know things will get better, it’s just the severity that I don’t know how long it’s going to last for. Recently, my joints in my wrists have been hurting, which have been affecting my ability to write and it hasn’t even been 24 hours of dealing with this burning pain. Has anyone dealt with new symptoms while relapsing for the first time? If so, please don’t be afraid to comment down below, I really need reassurance 🙁
