About to get my blood and, uh, effluvium tested for signs of various things

So…yeah. Yuck.
But, in any case, it's for my own good.
I've been sick for about a month and a half now, and it's about damn time something is done about it.
I'm getting tested for:
  • C. difficile infection,
  • Coeliac disease,
  • Various other gut problems,
  • Anti-nuclear antibody levels,
  • Possibly Lyme again?
  • And probably something to do with something autoimmune (other than coeliac and A.N.A.).
So I'm hoping I get a clear answer within about a week or so about what exactly the hell is wrong with me. I'm not gonna wallow in self-pity so that I can live the rest of my life a vegetable; I just want the diagnosis done so that it can be treated and/or medicated properly and I can continue the Work and live a fuller life.
So as of now, I'm cautiously optimistic. (Éiriú Eolas really does do wonders for the stress; I used to be pretty pessimistic about my overall diagnosis.) I'm expecting that it might be either continued Lyme or some kind of general autoimmune disease which can be medicated to stop the pain, spasms, and fatigue.
Now, I'm off in a second, so wish me luck!
