Hi Everyone,
Well, lets see over 8 months ago, I had little lumps that started coming out on my forehead, then slowly they spread and got bigger, they also changed color, so from looking like a normal skin color to now a reddish brown color. and it looks like the lump as been squashed, so it's now longer and not as swallen.....  Went to see my family doctor due to a lot of things put me on sick leave for burn out.....  I didn't really think of the bumps on my forehead as nothing but stress related.....  but as time was passing and more where coming out, and then I also started getting some on my cheecks.  My dr sent me to see a dermathologist, and he sent me for blood tests, as he thinks it's lupus.
My ANA came back Negative so I am pleased with that, but I noticed my Sed is at 25, should I worry....  I only see my doctor mid-november and I am a little worried.
Thanks for answering me back

High Sed means there's some type of inflamation going on. I hope they figure out what's going on and get you fixed up soon.
