... Hi, I am just starting the process of diagnosis. All I know is that I've been sick for 5 years and have gotten the run around like most of you.

I have some skin issues but not alot. Just a general flu-like... (1 replies)

I have terrible migraines, terrible IBS, so that I don't like to eat out. My... (15 replies)
... Hi. I'm just a patient, and these are just my guesses, so please read in that light, OK? Re anti-ds-DNA, you could find 11 diagnostic/classification criteria for lupus in the "sticky post" section located right above the thread list. These may be met serially, meaning not simultaneously: envision checking each off in indelible ink, once met. You'll see that the anti-ds-DNA... (3 replies)
