More Potential Problems!

Hi all...I hope you all are as well as you can be.

Well, saw my PCP, today. He is sending me to yet ANOTHER specialist. He thinks I have an arrythmia, and is sending me to a cardiologist. Do the problems ever stop coming? Will I, for whatever is left of my life, spend it being diagnosed with new health issues every time I see my doctors? It's just so frustrating, discouraging, depressing and heartbreaking (no pun intended)! It is so hard to not throw in the towel and give up fighting. I'm just so tired of it all.

I hear you....When I was first diagnosed with Lupus seems like I was being sent to every specialist out there and having every kind of tests done. It is very frustrating. I see a EP and a Cardiologist. I have an arrhythmia also, I have Afib. Keep being positive! Good luck and and take care!

I'm sorry you're going through this. :( Just try to think of one thing at a time or else you might get overwhelmed. I hope the best for your appointment with the cardiologist.

I understand how you does seem overwhelming at times...but like Sonja said, just take babysteps, and deal with one thing at a time. Good luck to you and feel better.

You are not alone. I’m in the same boat, not sane issues but anounts if specialists, too. I feel just like you, overwhelmed. I wish I had advice, which i dont, but just know I support you.

I had to have my mitral valve replaced in 2008 at 48 yrs old due to autoimmune. I have a mechanical valve. It’s tiring trying to keep up with everything autoimmune that happens to you. I was diagnosed with APS 27 yrs ago. I learned once you have one autoimmune others seem to follow in time. Stay positive!
