Re: What were your symptoms & how were u diagnosed?
Hi. I had problems from early childhood on. In early teens, weird periods, elevated sed rate, fevers & shin pain. In 20's & 30's, migraines, IBS, urinary problems, joint pain. In 40's, recurrent photosensitive rashes on arms & back that first looked like welts, then over time would expand into circles & fade without scarring. Persistent anemia. Was Dx'ed with SCLE "subset" of lupus, based on skin biopsy, symptoms & bloodwork (positive for anti-Ro but negative ANA). Hope this helps. Best wishes, Vee
