I have not yet been diagnosed, but all symptoms and blood work point to lupus. I have my first visit with a rhuemy next week. (took three months to get an appt with her). Aside from the exhaustion, muscle and joint pain, headache, depression, and so on and so on... I have now developed a weird area on my face. Its only on my right cheek/jaw and appears to be a grouping of pimples. They dont itch or bother me, but at 43 its a little odd to break out like this. I rarely get pimples anymore, and now I have about 15 of them all on my right cheek and jaw. I haven't changed detergents or soaps or anything like that. In my research I see that a butterfly type rash is common in lupus patients. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
