I just read the link that you gave me. I do not have raised red patches, nor the butterfly rash. Sunlight does not increase any skin changes (only severe heat sensitivity ,meaning it brings pain the longer im hot, like with MS).
I do not have oral ulcers but i do have an extremely dry mouth upon waking up. To the point that i have to first rinse mouth and clear in before I can brush my teeth.
They aren't very specific about
the neurological symptoms on this site, but yes i have many of the type.
I have had at least one bout of Optical Neuritis. This Rheumy doesn't think its ON though. Although 5 other doctors do.
Ana-tested negative in the beginning (first episode), thats why these labs that are out now, will be a tale tale sign I think.
The immunologic, I've never had any false positives nor been told I was positive for any of those.
Arthritis -yes and in neck/elbows/knee swells but no damage when exrayed.
Ginny, lupus had no dystonia or spasticity does it? Therefore, id either not have it, or id have both it and one other:(
Labs will be back soon and maybe tomorrow!
I'll keep you updated, and if you don't mind, I'd love to try and support you guys on this site as well? I suffer from the fatigue/renal involvement and a few others that have a common thread.
My friend and I at church really understand each other when describing what we go through.
Thanks again for posting back
p.s. as far as the spasticity no. I mean sure i get the jumps but thats the very mild version My legs turn inward, they become where i cannot walk. It has spread to my arms and even my throat muscles at times. Which they did say at the hospital happens, the voice gets hoarser and lower as a result. It severe spasticity attacks, thankfully they do not stay and baflofen clears them up. that is why i wonder if dont have 2 coexisting things. They also suggested i did.
Every day brings us closer to what we reach for .........in all things.
