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.

Any one heard of that?
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.

712508 tn?1242186115 About 2 years ago I began having pericarditis attacks and after my PCP ran all the heart tests, they did an ANA and decided I had lupus...... back to the rheumy again... who was not sympathetic when he found out I hadn't taken the plaquenil. He did another ANA which that time came back negative, and said it was just Sjogrens which can also cause the pericarditis attacks.

Avatar n tn Hi there and welcome to MedHelp. Some of your symptoms sound like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. I would suggest an ANA test to start off with. There are 11 criteria of lupus, you need 4 of the 11 for a lupus dx. They are: 1. malar rash (butterfly rash) 2. discoid rash - red raised patches 3. photosensitivity - reaction to sunlight, resulting in skin rash 4. oral and or nose ulcers 5. arthritis 6. serositis - inflamation of the lining of the lungs or heart 7.
Avatar m tn While another said it could possibly be SLE. I have Lupus (her mom) and have been hospitalized several times--kidneys, heart, etc., and so does several of my family members on my mothers side of the family. Her father also has a positive ANA but has arthritis. Just wondering what you think it might be? I do have a Rheumatologist appt. scheduled for her, but it's not for 7 weeks down the road.
Avatar f tn s disease, then a year later a heart disease, kidney disease, as well as a lung problem. I was tested for lupus and told I couldn't have lupus because I do not have lupus anti-coagulant or arthritis. Recently multiple sclerosis was ruled out. I was told nothing was wrong with my thyroid although the tests separate were off and find together. I also have unexplained inflammation. Whatever this is has a very odd pattern, it comes and goes, sometimes lingers for awhile.
Avatar f tn Lupus, TB, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, Heart Disease, Pregnancy, Nephritis, Anemia, RA, Gout, hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Also, some drugs can cause a sed increase like: Heparin, Coumadin, Birth control pills. Menstruation and high cholesterol can also cause high sed. This test is not diagnostic, only indicative and in your case your pos. anemia test may be the reason SED is high.
