Common Questions and Answers about Heart disease symptoms lupus


Avatar n tn Don't forget that in some cases Lupus can affect the heart as well.
Avatar n tn People with lupus of mixed connective tissue disease are at higher risk for develping coronary or valvular heart disease. Given that your symptoms have been going on for some time now, albeit, atypical probably warrant further workup. The most concerning would be the chest pain, although, you describe it as atypical. Unfortunately, women tend to present atypically and I would hate write this off to something else without doing a thorough work-up.
Avatar f tn But so many of the problems I am having this month seem to fit lupus more than MS. I am still having the MS symptoms that I had before but it's the new things that are bothering me. And then when I looked online and saw several people that have actually been diagnosed with both I got really worried. It's bad enough have 1 but I can't imagine having MS, lupus and thyroid disease at 34 years old. I feel like body is trying to do me in.
Avatar f tn I haven't heard of a link between fibro and heart troubles either, however, lupus patients can have cardiac involvement and it's quite common to have lupus or another autoimmune disease along with fibro. Have you ever been tested for lupus or other autoimmune diseases?
Avatar m tn procainamide (Pronestyl); hydralazine (Apresoline); and quinidine (Quinaglute). I once thought that I had lupus because I had many of the symptoms. I even had some positive tests for lupus. However, the ANA test was never high in titer. To have active lupus, the ANA is usually high. There is no one test to see if you have lupus. It is a clinical diagnosis, much like MS is. I thought I met the criteria, as outlined by slightlybroken, too.
1136339 tn?1260661819 I have had two positive Lyme tests( and my doctor didn't tell me). They said Lyme disease is overdiagnosed and it's a false positive. It it possible thought that I actually have Lupus and not Lyme? Because if I have Lyme it's already in stage four. Is it possible that Lyme disease can turn into Lupus?
Avatar f tn It certainly doesn't sound like heart disease.

1657646 tn?1302281413 I was diagnosed with Sjogren's last winter. The diagnosis explained a lot of what I thought was due to life style: stress, lack of sleep, dehydration, allergies, etc. I've had all the blood work done and continue to see my rheumatologist. Discussing physical symptoms I mentioned a raised rash I get on my chest, shoulders and arms after I've been out in the sun for extended periods of time.
Avatar m tn org they are rhumatic autoimmune sites, you may be able to piece together by looking at other sufferers symptoms, look into antibiotic minocin if it is rhuematic disease, (lupus ,scleroderma rhumatoid arthritis) are all rhematic disease some people believe that thse diseases are because of bacteria in your body.
Avatar f tn I googled all my symptoms today and the first thing that popped up was Lupus. I have really bad anxiety, heart palpilations, nausea, loss of appetite, and scaly skin on top of my arms for 3 years that hasnt gone away, Supposbly all of this can be from an immune system disease. Any one heard of that?
Avatar f tn Treating the bowel symptoms of Crohn’s disease will treat arthritis like symptoms too. Along with gut symptoms and arthritis, skin disorders too are commonly seen with Crohn’s. Crohn’s disease is a difficult entity to diagnose. An elevated ESR does confirm inflammation in the body. Low protein, minerals and iron in blood are the other findings in Crohn’s which may or may not be present.
Avatar f tn Well I have Lupus and I do have some of those symptoms but that still doesn't mean you have lupus. Lupus is the disease with a thousand faces ( that's what they call it) Don't jump ahead of yourself, wait until your lab work comes back see what they say and go from there. I do know what you mean about wanting to have a name but you want to make sure it is the right one and that you get treated right.
Avatar m tn I have flu like symptoms, where it hurts to walk 10 steps. Tired, forgetful, racing heart....they have put me on heart meds now. I take 1800 milligrams of Neurontin a day, which helped at first for the joint and nerve pain. I work 10 hours a week, and I hurt so bad after work. They tested me for Lupus, which came up negative. Tomorrow I am having a punch biopsy on my back at the rash. They were giving me Vicodin and Flexerill, but wont anymore because they say I have chronic pain.

Avatar n tn Hello; this last year I have been sicker than I have ever been in my life with various different symptoms each time that I would have a flare up of something ( I'm thinking auto immune disease of some sort). So, here have been my symtoms; 1)face rash around chin area, up side of cheeks over nose and then above my eyebrows this happened 5 times this year.
Avatar f tn Those are lyme symptoms. They can also be caused by a rheumatologic disorder. Have you been tested for other diseases? You never know for sure unless you get a CDC positive test for lyme. My doctor told me even if the tests are negative there is still about a 50% chance of having it. The longer you have it, the less likely you are to test positive. This is why it is important to see a doctor who specializes in lyme for an evaluation. I did see the rash but did not know what it was.
Avatar n tn Does lupus arthritis go hand in hand with lupus itself ? my sister was told she needs to be checked for lupus arthritis because all her bones are in pain .... her bones are very painful to the touch ..
