just a question...

Hi everyone. i have a lot of different symptoms and am in the middle of getting tested for lyme disease with igeneX. i did see a rheumatologist and had an ana which came up negative. i am also planning to return to her for the other antibody tests.

My question is... I have these rashes... well they aren't really rashes because they aren't discolored, more like dry skin patches sort of circular-- one on my arm and one on my chest. My face is slightly discolored, in the cheeks, but only really when i am stressed or exerting myself, so i don't know if that corresponds. but these raised bumpy dry skin patches, do these seem lupus related? My rheumatologist did not seem concerned.

Thanks for the help!
