so i went to a dermatologist b/c i have had this weird rash for 2 months that no one seems to know anything about
. he asked me if i had been tested for lupus...i don't think so, so he ordered a ton of labs. my white count was high, along with my c-reactive proteins. my ANA ( think that's what it's calle), was high which could indicate that i have lupus.
anyone else have uc and lupus? i go have the ANA drawn again in one month.
also, what exactly is the c-reative protein tell me? i know that it is always high when my uc is out of whack, which it has been for 5 months now....
Diagnosed in 1999, hospitalized once. Not responsive to meds. Currently on 12 Asacol, , 8 ampules of Gastrocrom, 6 grams Colestid, flagyl, remicade for my UC. Also have migraines and take B-4, B-2, for the prevention of them.
Deciding whether or not to have surgery at this time.
