Two Autoimmune Diseases
Last updated: February 2023
The call I didn't want
A blood test was ordered, but while waiting I felt worse every day. A week later PCP sent me to the hospital. On the way, I got a call with the results. MG.
After 3 days I was released. It's been up and down since. Unfortunately, I lost my job due to the physical nature of it. They couldn't make reasonable accommodations.
Adding another to the list
2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with another chronic autoimmune disease. Chronic Ulcerative Colitis. At this point, I'm taking 10 autoimmune pills a day. My UC has improved pain-wise, but I still have aways to go. Tomorrow I see my pulmonary doctor who has already diagnosed me with first-stage COPD. We will be reviewing CT scan and X-rays of my lungs.
My most frustrating MG symptom is _____.
