I know I asked this months ago, but with some new ones coming on I thought I would ask again.
 
I get red spots on me, no where particular, but they mostly come on my legs.  They start out as red spots, a little sore, no white head.  The after a few days they start turning tan with a crusty spot. then they just turn a little darker tan.  And very slowly grow.  They aren't very big. But this is not normal.  I tried a dermy for my lumps under my skin, but I am not going back to him for this.  There is a reason why I get these things and with having tired muscles and aching joints and now my esophagus is getting worse. I have an appt. with an endocrinologist next month.  My thyroid is enlarged on the right side along with having a cyst on that side too. When I lay down at night it feels like it somewhat closes off my air.  And having a pH probe test done last week made things worse along with getting a sinus infection too. Not a nice test to have to do.
 
But if anyone happens to get these spots please let me know.  I was told I have fibro and still feel it's a dx that they gave me just because they can't find out what is going on. I am loosing hair again, I was told it's not thin at all, but when you've had thick hair all your life and now you an see my scalp through the hair, that's not normal.
 
Does anyone have breathing problems with lupus?  I feel like I carry a weight around in my chest all the time.  I am seeing a cardio doc too this month. The new gastro doc I have, likes challenges and likes dealing with things that are odd. So I am in luck there.  LOL.

Hi Deb,

  I'm sorry you still don't have any answers. Maybe your Gastro doc will help you get some answers since he likes challenges.

  I hope your appt with the Cardio goes well. Hopefully, you won't have any problems with your heart.

  I see that you have asthma and COPD. I was dx'd with Asthma a few yrs after being dx'd with lupus. Lupus also attacked my lungs a couple of yrs ago. Since you do have problems already, I hope your doctors are keeping a close watch on your lungs. I get x-rays every 6 months to keep check.

  I really don't know about the spots, sorry. I posted a link in another topic on discoid lesions, but can't remember which tread it was. I will find it and paste it here for you too look at.

  Take care and keep us updated. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Deb,

  Well, I thought I had posted a link about discoid lupus, but apparently I didn't. I know I was looking at the pics yesterday. Sorry about that!
