I'm not officially diagnosed yet. My ANA was 1:320 so I'm waiting to get into see a rheumatologist. I can't believe how the comments here describe me so perfectly! I have the headaches, the brain/memory problems, fatigue, etc. I have been looking for help for years. I'm really hopeful that I can now get some help! I'm glad I found this site.

Welcome, kim.
Sorry you are in limbo as you wait for an answer.
We're good to lean on here. If you have any questions someone might have an answer. Even though we're not doctors we've experienced a lot.

Thank you, Joy! I already feel relief just by finding this site. So many of my bizarre symptoms can be explained by lupus such as having a seizure out of the blue. Who knew a seizure could be lupus? Of course I'm not diagnosed and I may not actually get a diagnosis... I've been looking for answers for years. The doctors always run tests and find nothing, then their pat answer is "depression". So I'm skeptical that I'll actually get help now. I'm afraid the rheumatologist will say it is nothing and send me on my way again.

Run from anyone who says your symptoms are nothing but depression.
