I am 34 years old. Last year I had the flu and since then I have suffered from shortness of breath, intermittant rashes, protein in urine, fatigue, loss of menstrual cycles, elevated glucose levels and difficulty staying asleep. I had a sleep study that showed that I do not go into rem sleep, I have had a positive ANA with other tests for rheumotid diseases as negative. HAS anyone else had similar symptoms.

Hi and welcome to Healingwell. Have you ever been tested for lupus? I'm not sure what all the signs of lupus are nor what the trigger is but this doesn't sound like anything allergy or asthma related. Take a peek over in our Lupus forum at their resource section or online. I hope you feel better soon and sorry I couldn't be more help :(

The rheumalogist tested me for lupus antigens only, she said to get the diagnosis of lupus you have to have five out of eight criteria elevated and I had four. My pulmonologist gave me the diagnosis of obstructive asthma and wasn't sure why my lung function is so bad. The rheumalogist said I could develop autoimmune disorder sometime but she wasn't sure when or what. I am just tired all the time. NO one is looking at all my symptoms.
THANKS Sherri for replying

It definately can get frustrating when the docs don't quite know what's wrong with you. Keep plugging along and hopefully you will find your answer soon.

Yes I agree with Red that one gets frustrated and worried when even the doctors can't find out what's wrong with your health. But i will tell you not to lose hope! Think positively and act positively

Hi.  I don't know what you have based on your symptoms, I'm not a doctor or anything, but I know of a site that lets you plug in your symptoms and it gives you a range of conditions to look at.  I typed in your fatigue, rashes, breathing difficulties, and loss of menstrual cycle.  It brought up Diabetes.  I didn't factor in sleep problems or the glucose levels because they weren't on the list of symptoms to choose from.  But maybe the elevated glucose also goes along with Diabetes.  I don't want to scare you or anything because this site is a site and not a doctor.  The site is called WrongDiagnosis.com.  I know the name sounds horrible, as if the site will botch a diagnosis, but it is a site that tries to help people from falling victim to a wrong diagnosis. 

Although, if it was Diabetes, I would think a doctor would have caught by now.  On the other hand, my father-in-law wasn't diagnosed with Diabetes until he had his first insulin reaction and had a seizsure.  Really, I'm not trying to be a downer or to scare you, but if Diabetes hasn't already come up with a doctor, perhaps you should bring it up.  If you go to the site I mentioned, go click on symptoms and scroll down to where it says "multiple symptom search." 

Hope this helps.
