Question Symptoms?

Hi All,

I have not been diagnosed with Lupus, but have been having some strange symptoms and was hoping for some feedback.

For about the past year, I have had a strange rash on my legs. It is in round patches, it doesn't itch most of the time, only occasionally. In the past few weeks I have also developed a small, red, raised rash on my hand.
I have extreme fatigue. I don't have a rash on my face, but a couple of times a day, my face will "flush" bright red (like a blush, but it isn't). My cheeks, and tip of my chin will turn red, and my face will be hot to the touch.
My sed rate is always high. They have noted this, but never done anything about it. Also, I have migraines, but the day before my period I have a extremely bad headache. To the point of having to go to the hospital for injections to treat the headache and vomiting. I don't know if any of these things are related, but I am concerned about them, and I really can't find a doctor that will listen long enough for me to voice my concerns.
I also have endometriosis, and I know that you are more disposed to having autoimmune disorders with this disease, which is why I am concerned.
Please email me with any feedback.

hi, i am from ga also. well my question is, when your face starts to burn are you in the sunlight or even bright flourescent light. even the lights in a doc office can be harmful. i work in a office and sit under lights for sometimes up to 12 hours at a time. it still hurts sometimes but my doc put me on plaqunil and it has helped alot. it makes me feel so much better. as for the other things really can't help you on that. you need to find a doc that will listen to you. if not you are not gonna feel like being honest with the way you are feeling. i hope i helped you out a little bit.
