Yes, lupus can affect your thyroid gland. I'd make an appointment to see your doctor or rheumatologist. Don't get all worried okay. Sometimes, it can just be a glitch in your system that will work itself out. Don't automatically think it might be cancer, okay. Let your doctors do the diagnosing first.
You're in my prayers,
"Thank you God for the storms that blow me right into your arms!"
