I had my first rheumy appt today after 4 years of not seeing them. I'm a little confused though. They did the tenderpoint test and I barely had any tenderpoints. Years ago when they tested me for it, I had all but one tenderpoint. She said sometimes after having a baby, certain illnesses tend to come out, so they want to make sure that it's nothing else. She sent me for a slew of bloodwork today...19 tubes to be exact. And they're testing everything...lupus, RA, sjogrens, thyroid disease, etc. She also said that a few years back when they drew my blood I tested positive for anticardiolipid antibodies, which I guess if you have more than one positive for it, it could mean you have antiphospholipid syndrome. So they're testing me again for it. Apparently it's some type of syndrome that puts you at risk for blood clots and miscarriages. I never had any blood clots or miscarriages, but I did have a high risk pregnancy due to bleeding. So, we'll see what the blood tests yield. She doesn't seem to think it's FMS, though. She thinks something else is going on.
