Avatar n tn I got this information from WebMD. Here are the symptoms for Lupus. If you have lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus, or SLE), you may be extremely tired, have skin rashes, or have joint pain. If the disease is more serious, you may have problems with your kidneys, heart, lungs, blood, or nervous system. Lupus symptoms depend on what body organs are affected and how seriously they are affected. Fatigue: Nearly all people with lupus have mild to extreme fatigue.
1027802 tn?1253122106 320 ANA recently, he is ruling out Lupus as a lot of my symptoms do not fit in with Lupus..also my anti DNA came back neg, which is usually the deciding factor in Lupus. He also rules out Lyme disease and fibromyalgia. I have been sent for an MRI but I suspect it was low resolution due to the centre at which it was done and it came back neg...I am now being sent to a consultant neurologist for suspected MS.

Avatar f tn are the symptoms for lupus and psoriatic arthritis the same? what medication is best for reaching both disease?
Avatar f tn Sometimes called the great imitator, lupus commonly displays symptoms associated with another disease, such as MS. Lupus and MS can be diagnosed simultaneously, although that is less common than being diagnosed with one disease, and then later, diagnosed with the other. An antinuclear antibody (ANA) test can help to confirm a lupus diagnosis, but other diseases, including MS, can also produce positive ANA results.
Avatar n tn Don't forget that in some cases Lupus can affect the heart as well.
Avatar f tn Lupus is a strange disease, and can cause a lot of symptoms. You really need to see a specialist that deals with autoimmune issues. Isn't Hashimoto's an autoimmune disorder? I have 2 different types of autoimmune diseases and they piggyback each other. I hope you don't have it, but better to find out and start treatment if needed. Good Luck PS Lupus can affect the heart and cause palps, but so can a lot of other things.
Avatar f tn Started; With a red spotty rash and a few small yellow/brown bruises... The rash went away within 30 mins and the bruises went away within 3 days. I got a rash again a few days later, on my neck, arms and legs. This time the rash was lumpy. Sore muscles for a few days. Flashing joint pain now and then. Bladder pain. Tender areas on my body. Achy legs especially at night. Muscle twitching. Fast heart beat at night for a few minutes. Eye twitching. Weeing more. Diarrhea.
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 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 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 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.
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? If you are referring to lupus, it is an autoimmune disease where the body's immune system attacks normal and healthy tissue. This can result to symptoms such as inflammation, swelling, and damage to joints, skin, kidneys, blood, the heart, and lungs. There are different kinds of lupus and the most commonly discussed is known as systemic lupus erythematosus or SLE.
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.
Avatar n tn I think many more tests would have to be done to even begin to suggest something like lupus or MS. The symptoms you have listed seem to me to go along more with anxiety, high blood pressure, and heart disease. How old is your sister? Just because she is active and eats healthy does not mean that she is not susceptible to high blood pressure or heart disease. Some people are just genetically predisposed to have those problems, even at a younger age.
Avatar f tn Hey there, I am living with this nasty disease as well as many others....Lupus is called a disease of a million faces.....Lupus attacks all major organs so yes it can attack the heart, i learned that changing your life style can keep this disease under control...I have been living with it for 3 years now, and i feel great........But i definetly had alot bad days as well.......I am 34 years old with a 2 year old daughter home that keeps me going....

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.
