My heart has shown stiffening on the right side and I do get out of breath so he's refferring me to the cardiologist.
I am also having problems with rflux etc so he's going to get general practitioner to precribe a proton pump.
I also need nerve conduction test for my right hand he thinks tendons have tightened & are now causing pins & needles - Carpel Tunnel.
I think it may be beginning to hit home that I really do have this disease and its scary.

Does this make sense?

I am glad that you were seen by a specialist and they are running the proper tests and getting you on medication that will help with some of the symptoms. It is very tough to be in limbo with out a diagnosis. Let the dr.s' run their tests and take care of you. Please let us know of the results and what treatment you will be pursing.
