Hi Vicki and welcome
Lupus can be hereditary that's for sure. I have heard of many mothers with Lupus that have children with it too. It's not a definite, but there is a risk for sure. Does your mom have problems with blood clots, or have miscarraiges? How about a stroke, mini stroke or leg clot (DVT)? Is she on a blood thinner? I am interested in your answer here.. and I will let you know why when you get back to me
I think that if you are showing the symptoms of Lupus that it is worth getting looked at by a specialist. Perhaps it would be a good idea just to make sure. Take care!
