I am very interested in the disease and have been diagnosed for 8 years. Believe me it does not go away but there can be long periods of remission. If you are not feeling better you need more help. I do not see a Rheumatologist as for many years I did and was
misdiagnosed by at least 3 of them . I picked an Internal Med Doc that I interviewed before I
changed to have him as my primary doc. It was a blessing. I have been in a remission
for over 5 years. Write to me at [email protected]

: : I was diagnosed with Lupus six years ago. I too have a positive ANA. Lupus is a terrible disease to live with. It has turned my whole world upside down. Fatigue and pain is something you going to have to deal with. Please go back to your doctor and have him explain your condition. Go to the library and get some books on Lupus or call a Lupus Foundation in your area for books. Educate yourself instead of guessing. Good luck and try and have a positive attitude. PauletteI was dx bu my general practioner with lupus about 2 years ago. I had a positive ANA, and low white count and a mild rash on my back.
: : Oh, also fatique and pain.
: : I was sent to a ruematologist who did a series of tests and said everything was normal and I had fibromyalgia?
: : My question is what do I have?
: : Can it just go away like that? I'm still not well and I probably should go back to the ruemie but I 've been putting it off til' I'm real bad.
: : Any info is appreciated, thanks you.
