ok the story was i got diagnosed with lupus by graham hughes last jan lots of problems have occured since. i am ana negative. my ds dna is within range although i do not understand if this means i have it. i was then had my diagnosis questioned and was off meds a lot of the following problems above happened since then. Been put under a local rheumatologist who gave me a methyl prednisolone drip intravenous in hospital, i was in a state not stop chest pain blood in urine, seizures etc. drip made me feel good and slept for days after it although given antibiotics which flared up spine paina and neuro symptons again. My eeg for fits are normal but a regular event with me???
pain in spine is unbelivable.

Can anyone give me any hope is the road to recovery or do i have a totally differnt illness i am so confused. cannot understand why my tests are not positive.

lots of love and hugs zoe x
