| | Not diagnosed yet, but have some Quest.???
My dr., who thought there was nothing wrong with me now thinks I have Lupus. This past Friday she ordered some bloodwork (ANA, DNA and something else?), but the results won't be back for another week or so. I have an appt. w/ a reumatologist on 23 APR and I'm hoping to get some answers then. In the mean time I was hoping someone could answer a few questions for me.
Can anyone tell me what the chances are of non-organ threatening Lupus turning into orgran threating? I have already had a ton of bloodwork done that shows my organs are fine so I know that if I do have Lupus it's non-organ threatening, at least for now.
How can you distinguish between the Lupus butterfly rash and roscea? I have hashimoto's (diagonsed in 2nd grade and I'm now 29) and I'm hoping that despite my normal TSH level that there's something off the dr. just hasn't seen.
Does anyone have a problem with their fingernails separating from the nail plate? This is happening to me. Below the white part of my nail there's a red band that goes across my nail.
Thanks for reading this.
