Hi, I am diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, and now my rheumy says there is an ovelap, he believes it to be lupus/mixed connective tissue disease. No positive bloods yet. I have had symptoms for around a year, which made them think of lupus, i.e. skin rashes, headaches, fevers, photosensitivity, raynaud's, general aches and pains, nose bleeds and on!!!
The reason I am posting this is to see if anyone has any ideas about what happened yesterday.
I had to have my eyes checked to start taking hydroxychloroquine, while in the opticians room my hands went very red on palms and on backs, with a a rash, also began to swell up so much that my wedding and engagement rings were very tight. After the test when I stood up there was a mirror and when I looked into it, my face and neck were also red with this large rash. The room had strip lighting and was warm. The optician asked if I was ok, and I was just looked odd!! After half an hour or so it began to go back to normal, any ideas>
