People with Lupus will get a "butterfly rash" across their nose and cheeks. They can also have a positive RA factor because Lupus does joint damage. Wonka is correct that it is difficult to diagnose in the beginning of the disease and you do have to meet 4 out of 11. Your levels (blood levels) will flucuate (becoming normal then abnormal when the disease is active). An ANA is a standard test for Lupus but will also come up positive for other diseases.
This includes serositis (pleurisy or pericardiatis, since you had bronchial infection, ask your doctor to check for pleurisy or inflammation of lining of lung), mouth ulcer, low WBC or leucopenia/anemia (hemolytic)/thrombocytopenia/lymphopenia, arthritis, kidney involvement, high ANA, finding of Smith Antibody (Anti-Smith)/ dsDNA/ antiphospholipid antibodies (anticardiolipin immunoglobulin G [IgG] or immunoglobulin M [IgM] or lupus anticoagulant), neurological features like seizures and psychos

I started to shake and cry because I know somehow in my heart that I am following my grandmothers footsteps and she has lupus and ms. She and I have so many things in common it is scary. I used to get the rash all over my face when I played soccer and right around my mouth would turn bright white. I just thought it was bad heat rash but now I am putting two and two together. Well, I just wanted to get that off of my chest. Thanks for listening!

One suggested it was rosacea, one said it might be dermatitis and the dermatologist said it could be those or lupus. Over many months I have had a raised red rash,near the left side of my mouth but also some on the right side of the mouth. I also develop, at different times, redness all over my face (particularly across the nose and cheeks) like sunburn. This comes on then passes after a half hour or so. There is also an area of redness at the top of my arm , within a circular area.

Dr was considering diag of spinal stenosis until he heard my paternal aunt had lupus. I've had no rash but have had some of the other vague symptoms that drs have just ignored such as severe canker sores, drooping left eye, painful swollen fingers and hands, muscle pain, knee pain. Right now all he's ordered is an ANA (other than the cbc, iron, b12 levels that were all normal) what other tests should I have to either diagnosis OR rule out lupus?
I know may develope other autoimmunes, I also have Raynauds. I wasn't sure if lupus was a possibility with the rash and muscle indentations but the blood work doesn't show it yet?

I'v myrid symptoms and they are rather dull to iterate, (makes me feel hypocondreatic) but for lupus, I get mouth sores and rashes that I don't think ever happens in MS - is that correct? Otherwise all of my symptoms can be found in either disease. Except for stricly MS symptoms like that jittery eye thing, and unplanned limb movement and this rediculous itcy patch and a numb finger (see, I sound rediculous). Thoughts??
Exposure to ultraviolet light (such as sunlight or tanning parlors) typically worsens the skin rash and can trigger lupus flares. Sensitivity to light affects many of those with lupus, with fair-skinned people with lupus tending to be more sensitive. Nervous system symptoms: Some people with lupus develop nervous system problems, most commonly headaches.

They just wont work right. Mouth/face gets very tight feeling. I am always opening my mouth as far as I can to stretch it. At times when eating when I start to take a bite my mouth does not open all the way. No pain just tight feeling Drop things randomly When laying down for bed my whole body seems to tremble from the inside. My husband cannot see it but I can feel it inside. I get the feeling of contractions in legs throughout the day but alot when I am sitting still or laying down.
I really feel for you. I've been in that desperate place. It's hard. I thought I was going to die before they dx me. Literally. Is your dad and little sister on any medicine? I know Plaquinel has made such a big difference in my quality of life. For one thing I am not familiar with the Russel test. I did google and found a site that said that different things can cause the results to vary. It also said it is a test if they suspect antiphospholipid antibody.
Hi Trudie, Lupus and Fibromyalgia are similar in many areas. They both have muscle aches, but lupus also has occasional muscle weakness. In lupus you joints not only hurt, they will also swell. You don't have the rashes with fibro. Fatigue goes with both. Not sure if the tingling prickly feeling in hands and feet are a symptom of both. Irritable bowel symptoms can go along with both as well as nausea. You can also have raunauds in both. The one big difference is the lab.
I don't know if this will work, but on the right side of this screen is recent activities and I just uploaded a new photo of my rash...

I've had Lupus 22 years and was just dx almost 2 years ago...

Signs and symptoms may be same as that of relapsing polychondritis, except that in systemic lupus the malar rash is on nose bridge and cheek bones. In discoid lupus, the rash is very characteristic, circular, with scarring. The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) has identified 11 characteristics that should be present for diagnosis of SLE or lupus and it is important that at least 4 of the characteristics should be present for a confirmed diagnosis.

Another problem is I had some sexual exposure just days before the surgery but it was protected (used a condom). Still, I am worried about HIV exposure since the symptoms look somewhat similar.
Earlier this month I got a lot of staph infections on my back lower and upper about 4 total (they appear as a bump and then turn to scab that's darker than my skin color) Then shoulder and neck pains (Anti-Immfla Meds Works) Now I am having chronic fatigue when waking up in the morning it feels like I have to climb a mountain to wake up Mouth sores Chest pain on my left side right under my left nipple Rash on my nose (I have had it for years) I don't know where to go or what type of doctor t

Hi! Well, if lupus runs in family, then multiple joint pain with rash can be due to lupus. Other possibilities are psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, polymayalgia rheumatica and chronic fatigue syndrome. Gout, though typically affects the great toe, can cause multiple joint pain with rash. Hashimotos Thyroiditis is another possibility. Hayfever and rheumatoid arthritis too should also be ruled out. Crohn’s disease is another possibility.
