Hi, I am 44 years old. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Sjogrens Syndrome 2 years ago. I am sure I've had it for quite some time. These diseases seem to be getting worse as time goes on. My Rhemy keeps checking for Lupus. I have positive ANA, high rhematoid factor, high sediment rate, and positive for both the Sjogrens markers.
I get the bronchial pnemonia almost every year. Last year I had pleurisy extremely bad for a couple of months, then it came back again for 2 1/2 weeks.
I suffer from depression and anxiety throughout my life as long as i can remember.
I suffer from kidney problems. There is no answer for this one right now. I was in the hospital twice because of what they said was kidney stones..but they could not verify. The pain was excrutiating..
Well, my goals here is to become more healthy. Unfortunately, I have battled all my life to remain a non-smoker. Remain is the key word. You think with all my problems this would not be an issue. I must have a real mental block when it comes to this addiction..especially with my lung problems.
I don't know what else to say right now. Blessings..
