    Hi @17emifon Welcome to the Community. Is your GP helping you with referrals to Consultants for tests to find out what your condition is and what treatment you need? Have a look around and join in when you are ready. If you have any questions please ask. Take care.

    Heya @17emifon and welcome to the community from me too!

    I'm sorry to hear you've still not had a diagnosis, as Beaver has already asked, are you still in touch with your GP for more tests? 
    If you need support with anything, please just ask away and we'll do our best to help. :)

    Thanks guys! My GP has sent me to many specialist, and we are pretty sure what ever is causing it is an Autoimmune, we just don’t know which. My rheumatologist has don’t like a million tests, but no luck.

    I have Crohn's which is an autoimmune disease, it took me 4-5 years to get diagnosed too @17emifon! It's a long journey I know, I hope you find out what it could be soon.
