I am in the process of being tested for this right now too. Is this a possible side effect from the TNF Blockers?? I was on Remicaide for a few years before it stopped working, then I was on Humira for about a year until it caused MS like symptoms. I recently started Cimzia and I broke out with a terrible rash, extreme fatigue, joint pain, swollen lymph nodes, headaches, mouth sores, etc. I had a bioposy done and it came back for possible Lupus. I had several blood tests done last week to see if it is definitely Lupus or medicine induced Lupus and I go back for the results tomorrow. The thing is, my mother has Lupus and was pregnant with me when she found out she had it. So if it is Lupus, I am not sure if it is true lupus or medicine induced. Needless to say, I will not be taking the Cimzia anymore, I have had it with all of the side effects I get from it!
Any one experience Lupus syptoms from any of the meds? I'd like to hear anyone elses experiences with it!
