60 Year Old Women Recently Diagnosed

60 Year Old Women Recently Diagnosed

Recently diagnosed 8 months ago. Mild disease( no organ involvement) although it doesn't feel like it. I can't seem to find any info on women being diagnosed later in life. Had similar symptoms back in 2009, but received no answers. I figured it was just menopause. Have suffered with chronic kidney stones for 45 years, so watching the kidneys closely, kidney function test are not normal but pretty stable. Just looking for info from any older women or men that gir diagnosed later in life.

I was just diagnosed at 59. I had pain, fatigue and unsteadiness for several years prior. My Rheumatologist told me “I don’t have to worry about mortality” which I’m assuming means it is a mild case. My ANA and Rheumatoid levels are abnormal.

I’m 68 And was Diagnosed 2 years ago. At first they thought it was antiphosolipid syndrome as bloods indicated both. I told it’d a combination of both. Autoimmune probs. I’m reading all I can and I seem to think my symptoms are more related to meds I’m on. Seems we just have to keep seeking help till drs listen. I have seen 2 rheumies and both day same. Will keep trying.
