Last October I noticed excruciating pain in the top of my right foot. It hurt so bad I was limping. Then I noticed my foot was very swollen a couple days later. So I decided to go to my PCP and she had no clue what was going but told me if I was still experiencing the pain and swelling to come back. Well I did. This time she did tests for autoimmune diseases. Long story short they called back and told me that I tested postive for SLE and referred me to a Rheumatologist. After that diagnosis I felt a sigh of relief because I could finally put a name to the way I was feeling. Everything made sense. I went to a different Rheumatologist on my own and he said I don't have SLE or maybe it's just the beginning stages so it's not showing up. This dr's office was a little sketchy though. Needless to say, my foot is still swollen (6months), brain fog is so intense it's hard to remember things, I am still so lethargic, I have rashes as we speak and just feel like crap daily. I guess I don't know what to do - I have all the symptoms but the last test that came back didn't show anything? I joined here to see how you guys are feeling, what are your days like, what are your symptoms? I know each case is different...
