... Any insight would be great. I'm an unusual case, I guess. And I feel guilty that I am a probable lupus patient who feels great and has never had joint pain or other lupus symptoms like lack of energy. ... (11 replies)
... Hi. There's a "sticky post" (permanent info post) on skin problems in lupus. (Stickies are right above the user threads.) Do any sound like your splotches? What are yours like? What color? Are they round? Solid or targetlike? Raised or flat? Do they sting, itch, burn? Scale (flake)? Do they fade, then brand-new ones appear? If any have faded, did those leave scars or... (21 replies)
... Vee, you have no idea how helpful you've been. Thanks for the great info. about facial rashes. As far as my lung situation, I had hilar adenopathy that finally resolved on its own. None of my docs know for sure what was/is in my lungs because we decided against invasive thoracoscopy surgery. And because my lung function tests came out above average, we took a wait and...

... AJ, hi. I've read that testing facial rashes is less straightforward, as your rheumie stated. First off, it's your face, which is probably harder to biopsy. Then there's the cosmetic consideration (scarring) to consider. And if the dr. chooses to biopsy some OTHER area (i.e., a lupus band test, done on nonlesional skin), I think results there are positive in a much lower... (11 replies)

... Hi everyone, new here! I've been reading these boards for a few months but I've been feeling kind of alone since meeting with my rheum and I thought it might be helpful to talk with other people who understand what I'm going through. Even though I have a wonderful support system with my family and boyfriend, I'm sure it's hard for them to fully grasp how I feel. A little... (9 replies)
... What are the EARLIEST symptoms of Lupus? I sometimes get these bright red patches on my cheeks,which are hot to the touch,and a little irritated. Somebody at work mentioned LUPUS...I am not that familiar with the disease. I also am always fatigued,stiff in the morning,some joint aches,but nothing that I can't manage. I am just wondering about those patches on my face. ... (4 replies)
... organ issues or joint pain. I have seen two rheumatologists now, and they both agree on the wait and see approach since I don't fulfill all the ACR criteria for lupus or scleraderma. And I, fortunately, still feel fine enough to jog and hike frequently. But the docs are testing my blood frequently for any changes. ... (11 replies)
... You would probably be on a very low dose Prednisone. I took really high doses of Prednisone for 13 years for severe asthma, now my asthma is doing better and I only take 5 mg of Prednisone for my lupus and scleraderma as opposed to 60mg - 80 mg for my asthma. I know it sound scarey to have to start Prednisone being a steriod and all that you hear about it. I felt the same... (11 replies)
... nil. I was disappointed when I asked her about people going into remission. She made it sound like a miracle if that would happen. I have two friends who have lupus who went into remission though. But I don't know the specific type they have. That's great that you have a teaching hospital to go to in Boston. ... (11 replies)
... Low levels of ANA can occur in MCTD, where they may be higher in pure lupus. Some people with MCTD get RA as well. So it is often hard to distinguish, especially early on. To clarify your thinking, I would get copies of your labs, research MCTD, look at all the symptoms you've had, and see where you fit. ... (3 replies)
