Hi everyone im in a rut
Just wondering if anyone could give me some advice on what they think this might be or if they have had simmilar experiences?
My mom has an autoimmune disease called Mythenia Gravis , she has been going for plasma flourisis 1-2 times a week for the past 7 months due to what the drs call a " mythenia crisis" .
My dr has told me that autoimmune issues can be hereditary and as a female im at higher risk .
Within the past 6 months i started loosing weight with no explanation as to why , i was not trying to loose weight at all.
My blood work shows i have low platelets and low b12.
Also i have had severe abdominal pain on my left side occasionally all over but usually in that area.
I found out my spleen is pretty enlarged.
I also have red dots and patches on parts on my body,the dots are more all over my hands arms legs and near my nose and ive noticed the patches more on my chest near my breasts.The patches come and go but the dots seem to appear more and more as time passes.
I am extremly sensitive to the sun and have suffered heatstroke a couple times as well as severe sunburns.
I am constantly tired and feeling worn out no matter how much sleep i get.
I bruise very very very easily and latly they have been appearing all over randomly.
And most recently i have been experiencing a lot of joint and leg pain .
I have had within the past 6 months an ultrasound , colonoscopy, endoscope, ct , and a gallium scan. All showed everything to be pretty normal aside from my spleenomegaly.
My blood results always seem to come back strange so the dr has told me since i am young ( i am 21 ) they will just keep an eye on my spleen and blood for the next little while . They said they definatly think i am developing an autoimmune problem they just cannot seem to put there finger on it yet.
Lupus had been brought up recently with a specialist but he also has said its too soon to say forsure .
Any feed back i can get will be greatly apreciated thank you so much !!
