My doctor is now suspecting Lupus, as I have begun to exhibit several symptoms not explained by a fibromyalgia diagnosis. I have had all the tests, Rh factor, ANA, with every test except Sjogrens & Hashimotos (hypothyroid for 7 years) being completely normal. In fact in September, I have severe lung inflammation, nodules, increased thickening of the lung lining and pleurisy and diagnosed pneumonia lasting 4 weeks. My bloodwork was normal. No increase in WBC, RBC or everything else...except eosinophils! My level is 15.4, which is supposed to be under 5.0!
Does anyone else have elevated eosinophils? I am trying to figure out what is going wrong with my body. I have insomia, hot flashes/chills, sweating, fatigue, muscle spasms, fever, inflammed lungs (3x in 8 weeks), sore joints, migraines, mouth ulcers (very painful), facial redness, severe anxiety/depression, back pain, neck pain (my whole spine hurts). Oh, did I mention comprised immune system...my kids have made me sick four times in 9 weeks!
