lupus in my 11 yr old
my daughter was a highly conditioned competitive swimmer competing at the regional level. Then wham, she got sick in December and hasn't been the same. can't even swim. she has rashy red cheeks, telantictashias all over her hands and arms. extreme fatigue, livedo reticularis, joint swelling in knees, headache, and more. Her ANA has been tested 3 times with result of 30 or 1:640, IgE of 340, and others slightly off. because her antibodies, crp,esr, were normal the Dr. say's there's no way it's Lupus. I have read article after article that disputes that statement. We don't want her to have Lupus but we can't keep going on like this. we have pulled her from school due to poor attendance because of weakness and malaise.
