Hello Everyone,
I went back to my rheummy this past Friday. The bad news is he dx'd me with Lupus. The good news is its in remission.I go back in 3 months unless things change.  Susie

I'm so sorry about the diagnosis Susie! Just another autoimmune issue rearing its ugly head.

I have been having positive titers for Lupus for 2.5 years. GI and rheumy attributed it to Remicade. However, I've been off Remicade now and my titers are still positive.
Seeing my rheumy tomorrow and asking him outright about the possibilty I have Lupus. Not that i want to have it, but it sure would explain some of the other odd
things I have been encoumtering.
