I don't know a lot about it, but 'some women just have an elevated level' sounds like a cattle herding kind of answer to me. Also, there is no *specific* test for Lupus, it is a conclusion drawn from a series of tests and observations. My friend just went through all this testing. Either way, a label isn't as important as getting an understanding of what is happening in our bodies and what things support or benefit us. The lump in your throat that comes and goes just doesn't seem like it's an ok thing to disregard either.
I really understand the whole run around issue. I'm right there with ya! It's hard to know who to trust, but when I start feeling like I'm not being listened to, or validated, I've moved on. I used to feel obliged to keep going to one person or another, but not anymore.
Anyway, the reason I'm harping is because you actually have something to point to in concert with your PMS and I've got to believe there's a care provider out there curious enough to help you instead of deeming you within some tolerant level. The goal is to thrive, rather than just survive, right?
