Re: Graves Disease Question

I would recommend that you look over the sticky notes at the top of the lupus board to review the signs and symptoms, both the criteria for diagnosis and alternative symptoms. Sun sensitive rash is one of the criteria. Perhaps if your endo is nice, he/she will run an ANA test while you are there. It is just a screening, but if positive, should be followed up with more specific antibodies. See if any other symptoms fit with your situation, and ask to get tested for it. If endo won't do it, rheum should. Just mention the sun rash.
