After a bunch of tests that came back negative, I have an appointment with my doctor today. This is the point where in the past I was told nothing was wrong with me with the implication that it was just in my head or I was seeking attention. I remember getting test after test for rheumatoid arthritis as a kid, but everything came back negative for that. This was a decade before CVID was recognized as a condition. One of the symptoms of CVID is joint pain. I also used to get seasonal bronchitis, a decade or so before cough variant asthma was recognized. In the back of my head, I’m wondering what this doc will say about my test results and what to do next. I hope that medicine has changed where the certainty of current knowledge doesn’t overshadow patient care. So my journey in differential diagnosis adventureland continues.
