Sorry you had this... (1 replies)

... I did ultrasound and MRI scan on both feet and both hands, for the swelling. No inflamation. On the feet, osteoarthritis is noted in thr big toes on both legs. Because there is no inflamation found, does it mean that the reason for the swelling is not autoimmune? Should I insist on muscule biopsy? Should I get MRI on all joins that hurt, just in case they will... (5 replies)
... The swelling could be a symptom related to an autoimmune disease called Mixed Connective Tissue Disease (MCTD) which includes lupus but is a little broader. The blue discoloration is probably Raynaudís which is caused by vascular spasm and occurs in several of the autoimmune diseases. I would take pictures of both the swelling and the Raynauds to show your Dr. and be sure to... (5 replies)

... nysue, I'm just a patient but I think your labs and symptoms could be suggestive of lupus, but only depending on your lab levels. To put your lab results into context, you really do need the reference ranges. Also, there are OTHER tests typically run when lupus is suspected, so you'd want to know what ELSE was run. Could you procure hardcopy of your labs? To illustrate.... (28 replies)
... Retired, I understand being upended by the word "lupus". I was, too. I headed to the library & borrowed hardcovers with greater detail that you can find online. From them I was able to see if I did have lupus (and I'd had a whole slew of on-off symptoms since early childhood), that even so, it was likely on the milder side. Why? Because my major organs were OK. Yes,... (8 replies)
