I went to the doctors the other day with myoalgia and joint pain, fatigue (some days better then others), upset stomach /inconsistant bowels, redness on my face that I though was Roceaca but am started to think it is a malar rash (it fits better), worsening Raynaud's phenomenon, low grade intermitent fever, dry irritated eyes and a tightness when I take a deep breath. The doctor suggested Lupus and since then I have been looking it up, what scars me if that it fits. about two years ago I had a really bad rough of the same symptoms. I changed diet, started working out, and taking different supplement and it calme down and got better. That was when the Raynaud's phenomenon was triggered. Since then I have kept a low level of pain and discomfort in body and joints and intermitent stomach issues, along with intermitent redness on face on cheek and nose sometimes in between my eyes. I am beginning to think two years ago may have been my first flare and I am having one now. I was given celebrex for pain which is doing nothing. I am stresed about the probability of it being Lupus and what that means for me and my life.
What does having Lupus mean for you and how has it changed your life? I want to have alot of kids, is miscarring a real concern? Also what can I do to lessen the pain, discomfort and fatigue. I also have ADHD, and what is going on seems to be worsening my concentration and memory, the last thing I needed. Please help, I am only 25 and people I talk to don't understand what I am going throug; not just the idea of Lupus but also what I am going through physically. It is scary.
