Hello to all
I have just been approved by a moderator to give you this website so you can have all your lupus test questions answered. If you go to this site and look under diseases and conditions then look up lupus you will find a piece called lab tests in lupus. This has all the lupus tests they run and what positive and negative results mean. It's a great refrence tool. So here it is.... [url]http://www.hss.edu/[/url]
I have not yet been diagnosed or seen by a rheumie yet however due to past Kidney Stones
I had to go to the Urologist yesterday. I am awaiting the results of my CT and 24hr urine test (which I finished this morning) so I hope I have not developed any more of those nasty things all though I have a 70% chance........... The Urologist noticed the rash on my face and my tremors right away and asked me why I have not been to a Dermie yet, he said that a Dermie diagnoses Lupus and other skin related diseases and a Rheumie treats them is this true??? He said a GP will do nothing for me up in the boonies here where I live, he said they are used to seeing "horses" and he thinks I'm a "zebra" to use his exact words. Obviously he feels there may be something going on because he told me to go to the U of M and see a Dermie there. I will still be seeing the GP on Tuesday though to see what his opinion is. Wish me luck in all my endeavors.
Thanks and I hope you are all doing well, for those of you that are not God Bless and you will be in my prayers. I hope the link I provided will be beneficial to some of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
