Re: Is lupus fatal?
Thx for the quick rsponse....
Maybe you can help me w/ a few questions.
I have been feeling ill for some time now,
Loss of weight (but great appetite)
losing hair (but not in patches, YET)
VERY itchy skin, No rashes except for the damage i do from scratching.
very light menstrual periods
Sensitivity to light
Just recently joint pain (2 days, in ankles, legs, kness, arms, fingers)
my dr says i have antibodies for thyroid inflamation (TPO&TG) but cant diagnose me because TSH and rest is normal.
I asked can it be lupus and she looked like, ahh, not really sure. (Surprised me).
I know she did Bloodwork, a 24 hour urine check, and I saw from a bloodwork sheet in 2004 (not that this means much, was 2 years ago, a anti nuclear was negative)...dont even know why it was run.
do you think something wouldve showed with the normal bloodwork and urine testings?
What were your syptoms and how were u diagnosed........
THX So much!
