I seem to have developed a pain in the upper left side of my abdomen. It came on suddenly and doesn't seem to want to leave. My husband thinks that it might be my spleen. Does anyone else have this problem? I have not been diagnosed yet. Just a positive ANA - waiting for rheumatologist's appointment at the end of the month.
I am thinking that if this pain doesn't go away or gets worse I should contact my primary doctor and get in to see her.
Do problems with your spleen happen when you have lupus? I know they do when you have mono. I have had that twice.
I have the same pain!!!! It's on my left side, right under my rib cage!! I haven't been diagnosed yet. I see a rheumie, 8/1. I , too have a positive ANA. I suspect lupus or Lyme disease. Please let me know how you made out at the doctor's and what became of the pain. Thank you!
