I'm Gean... And a newbie.
So, I may just be paranoid, but I wanted to just see what others thought...
This all started today when I started to get stabbing pain in my chest and back (lung area) when I took a deep breath or talking. I did some research and my symptom sounds very close to pleurisy, where I saw that that is also a symptom of Lupus.
When I went through a symptom checker, I marked off pleurisy, headaches, anemia (have been diagonosed in the past), I'm on Wellbutrin for concentration issues, depression and anxiety, I have been extremely tried lately. I mean I feel like I have always felt tired, but more so lately that I noticed I need naps (I'm 24 I shouldn't need naps).
I lose hair, but I decided to start taking vitamins so I take those ones for hair and nails, so just recently, I'm not losing as much hair as usual. I also started to take B12 to fight the tiredness.
I get leg twitches. I crack my fingers a lot, so part of me doesn't want to say that my joints in my fingers bothering me is because of Lupus.
OH and here is why I am even asking. I was just recently at my doctors and he believes I have IBS symptoms and has put me on medication. I saw online that IBS is a possible symptom....
Ugh. I don't know! Paranoia????
