Medical mystery.... still a mystery....
Lots of very bad things have now been ruled out by my recent MRIs (MS, lupus, liver and thyroid disease). Good as that is, it means I still don't have a diagnosis :-\ Inflammatory markers in my blood are elevated, as is the alkaline phosphatase level (ALP). Decided that the ALP level I'm hanging around is normal for me as it's been stable for nearly 6 months. Neuro mentioned sarcoidosis as the next checkpoint, I know nothing about that.He took me off amitryptiline (too many side effects, no good effects), to put me onto Neurontin. Will have to see how that goes for 6 weeks.
