Hi. I'm new to this forum and just wanted to query a few symptoms with you all and see if you thought I had lupus. I have suspected for a couple of years now but the doctors seem to dismiss it.

I have the butterfly rash on face as well as some roseacae also the past few years my liver function tests have been all over the place - usually come back high but the doctor doesn't know why ! I get a lot of rib pain and have some nodules there as well as one in or on my lung(not sure which). I suffer with occular migraines and my right eye also gets sore/red - last time optician looked he said it was episcelrtitis. I have 4 children who I have carried no problem and were born full term but in 2011 I did miscarry at 17 weeks which no cause was found ( this was around the time the rash flared up) I also suffer with GERD. I get tired a lot but wouldn't say fatigue

Sorry for the long post- there is prob some symptoms I've forgotten but will add them as and when. Any help/advice would be lovely.
I am 31 year old female - uk

Do you have joint pain and swelling?

There is a list of the 11 indicators of lupus at You need to meet at least 4 out of the 11 to be diagnosed with lupus.
Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, OA, Depression, Allergies, and benign familia tremors

Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))
