I'm so happy to have found this site.I have Lyme disease (diagnosed in 1991) and have had chronic pain since then.Very little response from doctors.Now I have had a positive ANA of 1.8 and they are sending me to a rheumatologist.I have looked up some of the symptoms of Lupus.I have had severe mouth/nasal sores,I have hair loss,butterfly rash that gets very hot,chest pain (recently),and of course joint pain/swelling.
Does anyone know of a connection between having Lyme and Lupus,and how likely is it to be Lupus with the symptoms and level positive that I have.From my understanding 1.8 is not very high,just at the cutoff point.
They aren't getting me inot the specialist for almost two months,and the "not knowing" is driving me crazy!!!
(Oh,and are migraines/headache related to it at all?) Thanks so much for any answers you may have!
