Hi and welcome to the board. *Huge hugs to you!* I am sorry you are going through such a tough time.

Your symptoms are pretty non-specific, so it is really hard for me to guess what is going on. You say your blood work showed abnormalities. What specifically did it show?

It sounds like your doctor is at least concerned enough to follow up and try to find the problem. I know it is hard to wait, but hopefully the tests you have scheduled will give you the answers you need to move on to feeling better.

Please keep us posted on what is happening with you. We are always here if you need a place to vent.

Hi, my name is Matt. How are you? First I want to say I am sorry for your illness. That is really scary because it came out of nowhere. I kind of know what that is like because I've been dealing with a mental problem (depression) that I have no reason for me to have.

Thank you for posting that, Matt. I get the Hopkins newsletters, too, but had not read that one yet.
