I didn't know I was sick when I had the offspring - I keep reading it's rare for a mother to pass Lupus to her daughter - I have seven daughters, three of them have been diagnosed (by different DRs) with Lupus among other things
My "baby" (13 years old) has been feeling crummy for the past few weeks - going to bed early (even on weekends) sleeping late, napping, and dragging during the day - and complaining about things that sound too familiar to me - she has an appointment Monday with her pediatrician

Sorry this has showed up in your daughters.
My mother has MDS which is a type of autoimmune disease. My sister is beginning to show signs of lupus. Her daughter has been told she has a positive RPN (?) and has been losing her hair slowly.

I worry about passing it on to my children to. My son already has a IGA deficiency that ca lead to lupus or RA. My daughter has no problems so far.
I have no idea where I got it. No ancestors had it as far as I know.

My mom had Juvenile Diabetes or Type I Diabetes which is considered autoimmune. My sister has Hashimotos Disease which is an autoimmune disease of the thyroid.

I have read that if you have an autoimmune disease in your family of any type you are more disposed to having Lupus or some other autoimmune disease. I have MCTD.

I'm so sorry that this is happening to you. I can't imagine having your daughters sick with Lupus too.

I have only sons but one of them seems to be tired all the time and has a low WBC. Of course he won't go to the doctor to be checked. Men can get Lupus too.

Hugs to you,
Mary Ann

Nine years ago, my daughter was born with neonatal lupus and a heart block. She spent the first two years in and out of hospital. She was recently diagnosed with Raynaud's. She suffers from headaches 3-7 days a week. She also has a lot of pain and nodules on her feet and hands. Her pediatrician thinks its early stages of arthritis, but isn't overly concerned with it. She is tested every 3-4 years though for lupus.
I hope that things get better for your daughter.
