Hi guys. I am new to this forum. I have a few questions maybe some of you can answer. I went to my Rheum. yesterday and he is ordering a lupus panel, ana screen, alt, albumin, cbc, and many more test. I think he suspects lupus. Some of my symptoms are light and heat sensitivity, dizziness, joint pain, flushed skin, reoccuring urinary infections. I have a butterfly rash that they said was roceasa. Also in the back of my throat I have like little pimples on it. I have never had them before. I do not know what mouth ulcers or sores look like. The thing is I would like to know why I feel like crap all the time but I do not know if I am ready for a lupus diagnosis. Most of my other doctors think it is the stress that I am under I don't think stress would make me feel this way. All I have to do is say that my daughter is autisic and they blame it on stress. Even the rheum did. I just feel like screaming.
