|My doctor has just started throwing around the word lupus and I'm not sure what to think. Wanted to get a feeling from those who have experienced it first hand as to whether what seems like a weird collection of symptoms I've had over the last 6months could actually be lupus as my doctor seems to suspect. |
Started with chest pain approx 6 months ago. Chest CT indicates I have a hyperplasia thymus (cancer has been ruled out). Funny barking cough that they thing is the Tunis pushing on my lanygeal nerve. ANA 1:320, CPR &ESR both elevated. Most recently (last 6 weeks) I have had extreme thumb joint point and pain in my hip and now a rash that is not responding to any antifungal etc develop under my arm.
Does this actually sound like lupus or is my doctor grasping at straws.
