Hi, I'm a little new to this area of the board. I'm trying to figure out what's going on with me... something my doctors are yet to do. The whole thing started in August, when I noticed slighty annoying, but not horrible aches in the long bones of my legs. By November, I was having worse aches and pains in all of my bones, joints, spine, it even feelt like the "joints" where the bones in my skull are hurt. The pain is the worst in my hands, feet and ankles. I attributed the pain to various things and brushed it off, but it wasn't until I started noticing the bizzar ulcers in my mouth that I started to get worried (they broke out on my tonge, gums and inside my cheeks. They were raise, white and hard). At first, I was terrified that I had AIDS, but I took 3 HIV tests, all of which came up negative. I decided to a see my school doctor in Dec, he did a CBC and lyme test, which was negative and the CBC showed nothing unusual. I decided to go to a "Real" doctor when my chest started to hurt, I had pain in my back below my ribs and the ulcers started showing up inside my nose. It was then that the nurse practioner asked me about my family and lupus. I have to go for an antibody blood test, but apparently that won't even be a clear sign of anything. Does this sound like what's going on with you guys?
