Welcome to the forum. If you want others to see your questions you need to start a new topic. Questions can get lost in existing threads that are about different topics. I've pasted your two posts here for others to view.
Regarding your daughter, I'd seriously consider getting a second or third opinion. Does she have at least 4 of the 11 criteria needed for a Lupus diagnosis? Click here to find the criteria. www.lupus.org. Sometimes we need to have a large army of doctors in order to get all the answers. Is she seeing a rheumatologist? Only they can do all the specific testing for Lupus. I'm sorry she's struggling so much. I'll definitely keep her in my prayers too. What is her name?
I'm new here. Your signature sounds a lot like my daughter, except for age. She was in the hospital ER yesterday receiving morphine injections for "migrain". Her chest pain was unbearable but the doc says that this time it is not pericarditis. I myself have fibromyalgia and chronic fatique syndrome., but my concern is mainly with my daughter. She is really unable to do anything at times. We are appreciative of any info that we can get.
I am so sorry to hear about your cat. We lost our main coon cat to thyroid disease. He was a member of the family.

Let me correct something from my earlier post. My daughter says that although her ANA was positive, the MD says that she does not have lupus. Her positive ANA was due to her autoimmune disorder. she has Hashimoto's, fibromyalgia, has had pericarditis, and she has this weird thing with her eyes being blurry and severe pain in her eyes. The MD says that this is Intraocular iritis also related to her auto immune disorder. She also has arthritis. As you can tell from my post, I am worried about her and would appreciate any and all input. The doctor's are not as concerned with her as I am.
I also have a My Space page set up if anyone wants to assist me with it. I am computer illiterate. It is "unseenwind". That is about all that I know about my page.
We pray for my daughter daily and also would appreciate anyone who would join me in that effort.
