Indeed, seymour you are 100% right!
It struck me while reading your post. I am currently exactly doing that. I am jumping from symptoms to symptoms and cannot even recall how many of them I went through and which ones freaked me out at the beginning. As a new one arrives, I forget about the previous one and focus all my brain on this new thing. For instance I went through a crazy phase, like believing my iris was not perfectly round, where in fact, it was obviously perfectly round, plus I was seeing an ophthalmologist on a weekly basis. He would have noticed days before me since he was examining my eyes with eyes microscopes and such.
This is exactly what is driving me crazy since end of March. And yes, it's a long time! But because I am abroad It complicated everything (quick remark : having an auto-immune disease in a flare/active period while being abroad is a really extreme shi**y situation).
While speaking about flares, I guess my irits is the result of one, followed by my back pain that emerged one morning (better now). I guess I can consider it the same flare? Do you believe that flares are very sensible to stress, and environments? I am asking because, maybe 2 weeks after arriving abroad, I started to have more and more pain in my feet (this is where the AS first took for me), at some point I even remarked that it has been a long time since I didn't have that much pain. Which led as you know, a few months later to my first iritis.
I know that I am whining while in fact at this very moment I am in good health. Lots of people are in way worse situation and deal with it. I don't know, when I am going crazy about this, I cannot help it ...
I guess we are in the same kind of boat on the fear level.
