Should I have my 14yr old tested for lupus?
We have a family full of auto-immune disease sufferers. My mom has lupus/fibro/cancer and others, aunt has RA and others, uncle has lupus and others. My sister and I were just diagnosed almost a year ago w lupus/fibro and positive ANA's for Sjogren's and Schleroderma. I've had some of my symptoms since before age 11. My daughter has many of my symptoms, such as...constant headaches, leg pains, eye pains, mood swings, muscle twitches, etc. She has an appt at the end of the month. Should I request extensive blood testing? Oh yea, she also has light patches on her arms and legs. They are not quite what I would think of as vitiligo, but I can't explain the skin lightening...
Any responses would truly be appreciated...
