Cried Wolf too many times

I am being further evaluated (after positive blood test for Antineuclear Antibodies - suggesting a connective tissue disease) for lupus, I think SLE though.
Have hypothyroid, Rash on and off, severe treated acid reflux, headaches are more frequent, enlarged lymph nodes and low white blood cell count and fatigue

Think it’s definitely lupus, I’ll know in a few days
Family think I’m being a hypochondriac

Thanks, yes, Though answers will be specific to now

It’s very much an anything could happen in the day to day of it though… Risk of pleurisy, arthritis, kidney / liver problems, depends what organ if any the immune system wrongly attacks

Good luck!

It’s so hard to diagnose something like that, but I hope they get it right.

Yeah, think the main thing is immunosuppressive stuff

Thanks !!! 15151515

It’s suspected because I have a lot of the symptoms and had a +ve ANA suspected as in thAts what they think it is as in the +ve test that tested for ANA gives them reason to think it’s lupus

still even if you have lupus its not lupus anyway. because its never lupus. (i thought you knew?)

Yeah x I spoke to a different doc -

It is a reference to the TV show House. In the show, the doctors frequently suspect that a patient has Lupus, but it never turns out to be lupus.
