First of all, I posted this post in my Crohn's forum first, but then was suggested it better if I post it here. Sorry if I just posted the exact post. So here we go:
I hate to sound paranoid, but I read an article of the Lupus illness and I fear I might have it. I have a small, red rash in my face and noise like the butterfly shape. and I've been feeling tired and weak all the time, been then again I should feel tired and weak or fatigue because I already have Crohn's and HCV (thou HCV is still early so I don't think it's giving much issue, but the meds do make me tired) and I've cached this could and it's taking forever to go away from me, mostly because my immune system is weak since I take Humira and now I fear it's partly because of the Lupus.
I'm really sick and tired of trusting doctors who don't know jack, it's just I want to be safe then sorry. I know there is tests to show indications but not clear sign of Lupus, well that's the thing, I already have these indications like tiredness/fatigue and the rash, not to mention a weak immune system. But the cause of them can be other then Lupus, but how can I know it's certainly not Lupus? And how long does the results take?
Half my worry is not just he Lupus, but my doctor, sometimes he can be a bit stubborn in his opinions so I'm worried also about him trying to explain my doubts.
Thanks for your time, and sorry for sounding like a cry-baby. I'm just so tired, and don't have anyone to talk about my worries so pleas try to understand me.
