Hello I was diagnosed with lupus three months ago. I am a little confuse thought. In 2011 they did blood work for lupus and it came out negative. I thought I had it because in would have low fever and body aches really bad that I couldn't do anything.would happen every two wks . Hands would turn blue and white. Chest pain and would run out of air and felt really tired. From the time I started having my pains and fever which was in 2011 up to late 2012 I stopped having them. They just stopped with no prescribed medication. I ended up going to see my dr Sometime in early 2013 because my elbow would hurt when I would try to straighten it out and would get one or two bumps on my forehead and hands would turn blue or white.She did blood work and lupus came back positive. Could that explain why I've been having headaches like for ever and eye pain and excessive gas that I have trouble breathing that I can't sleep at night recently?And brain fog ? I'm still learning what's lupus. Haven't told my fam yet. Been feeling a little depressed because I end up getting some sort of pain every day.gets old sometimes. I read people
With lupus should consider seeing a therapist do to depression and stress. Is anyone seeing a therapist? Sorry for so many questions. I just want to see if anyone could relate to this. Thanks

I see a therapist. She helps me with coping skills.
Chronic pain and fatigue does tend to drag you down.

I've tried to find a way to indulge myself in little comforts to lift my spirits:
Cushion mattress topper, plush pillows, soft furry blankets, and soft clothes.

Have you visited It tells a lot of information about lupus.
Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, OA, Depression, Allergies, and benign familia tremors

When life throws you lemons....
Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))
