Lupus is diagnosed with a list of 11 indicators. You must meet 4 out of the 11 to have it. Positive blood work is only 1 of the 11.
You can have positive blood work but not have lupus.
If your doctor is basing only on blood work then get a second opinion. Has he considered fibromyalgia?
Lupus, RA, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, Depression, Allergies, diabetes, and benign familia tremors
