Am I at high risk?

So my mother has both Lupus and Fibromyalgia. I wanted to know if im at high risk, I work almost 60 hours+ high paced jobs as well as I had some traumatic things happen as well as a couple head injuries. I heard that can be a cause of fibromyalgia. So I was wondering if I was at High risk and when I should start getting tested if so? Im currently 21.

Re: Am I at high risk?

There seems to be a genetic predisposition to lupus so you are probably slightly more likely to get it than the average person. My daughters have their ANA tested occassionally. So far so good. I think how you are feeling should guide you.
