I’m new to all of this and absolutely terrified and would really like someone to offer some guidance/advice. Please help.
I’m a 34 year old, otherwise seemingly healthy female living in Seattle. Over the the past month I’ve had some very odd symptoms that now that I’m putting together, seem it could be this. Slightly dry and bloodshot eyes, weird rashes, more broken blood vessels than I’ve ever noticed, GI issues, cold feet that turn blue only when I’m sitting, weight loss and some back pain. I’ve battled severe health anxiety and depression for most of my life and this just feels like too much to bear. I’ve been to four doctors in the past week (twice to the ER) and no one will listen to me. They all seem to think I’m fine and it’s “anxiety” which I know it’s not. They’ve done the basic blood work and took a sed rate and c reactive protein and all were undetectable. I’m begging to get into a rheumatologist as soon as possible as if this is something, I want it caught early but that’s proven to be difficult. Health has always been so important to me and the prospect of all this is preventing me from functioning in my day to day until I get some answers.
Please please help with any advice or reassurances you may have. I want a long healthy life with children and am just so frightened.
Thanks in advance everyone.
