My symptoms + Lupus in Family...
Hi, Im new here. I am a 38 year old female. I have had several negative ANA tests and 1 postive. The family MD i had was reluctant to diagnose anything. My symptoms are:
Swollen lymph nodes- neck, groin, armpit (almost 2 years now)
Hair loss- white rash in hair
random joint pain that moves place to place
peeling skin hands and feet
round rash (small ones) turns kinda white with scaly red underneath
numbness- tingly hands + feet
water retaining ankles
low grade fevers on and off
Small bumps under the skin on my face(cheeks)not acne
other hopefully non-relating things.
recurrent shingles..same spot everytime 1/2 dollar size
Gall bladder removed
Diagnosed Plaque Psoriasis.
I had a biopsy of the lymph node in my neck--told it was swollen lymph tissue
My uncle and my sister both have SLE. My sister died several years ago due to SLE complications. An ideas what I should do or kind of Doctor I should see. Thanks JayDee
