I have been having problems for about 15 years. I started with back problems. Then I would get flare ups and would be very sick(like the flu). I have been to so many doctors. At first they thought I had Lupus(SLE)then they said it may be sclederma, and now they say I have Rhuematoid Arithritis. I also have carpal tunnel syndrome. And now I am experiencing L5-S1 problems in my back with a pinched nerve. I left my last job 1 1/2 years ago because I felt so bad. Sometimes I feel like I need to push it and go back to work. But it is so hard. Don't really know what I can do. I really am not confident of what I really have! Any advise on this would be appreciated.
