Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn Lupus is a very strange thing. Some people have a few things go wrong while others with Lupus have alot of trouble with it. Years and years ago Lupus was thought of something that happened to woman between their late teens to early 20. So it was put aside as nothing. Now it does matter what sex you are or what age you are when you get a DX saying you have Lupus. Lupus aalso has come along way. Some 40 years ago doctors would tell people with it they only had a year to live.
1657646 tn?1302281413 I didn't know developing food allergies was related to Sjogrens. Does that go for other allergies as well? I've noticed that I've grown allergic to cats. A have friends who have cats, every time I go for a visit my nose gets runnier and I get itchier, it gets worse and comes on faster everytime. 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?
1136439 tn?1290178052 I have extreme fatigue. Some muscle aches expecially in my legs. Arm rash and now have it in the roof of my mouth as well. Any input would be helpful. I go to see a Rheumatologist in February. Long time to wait for answers. I see my MD next Friday and want to ask for some liver test but he blew me off when I mentioned AIH before.
Avatar m tn 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
Avatar m tn 320 positive homogeneous ANA and normal CRP, B12 as well as thyroid and other labs. At the same time, she was found to have an acute flare up of her chronic tonsillitis. She has now had the tonsils removed 3 weeks ago. The doctor suggested waiting a month or so to see what the ANA looks like. Does anyone have experience with acute/chronic tonsillitis and what the contribution may be to the 1:320 ANA level?
Avatar f tn Initially it is itchy then i have small spots that have dry skin at the base and some are filled with small amoounts of fluid. The rash is spread across my nose and cheeks and is very silmilar to lupus rash or rosacea .If i use a sunbed a get round dry patches on my arms and back like excema that dont tan. I have persistant kidney stones. Joint pain in knees wrist ankles. i have ibs/celiac disease symptoms. I have flares of dry eyes mouth and lips and no amount of fluid intake resoves this.
Avatar f tn My joints hurt so bad at times, I have a rash across my nose, get sores in my nose and mouth and so on. Finally found a clinic to go to since I did not have insurance and the dr there was very good. He is sending me for a whole lot of test for a lupus panel, fibromyalga, different blood work and also a ct scan. I guess my question is depending on the results from the lupus panel how can they make sure that is what I have.
12182312 tn?1427683956 butterfly-shaped rash across cheeks and nose --Discoid (skin) rash: raised red patches --Photosensitivity: skin rash as result of unusual reaction to sunlight --Mouth or nose ulcers: usually painless --Arthritis (nonerosive) in two or more joints, along with tenderness, swelling, or effusion. With nonerosive arthritis, the bones around joints don’t get destroyed.
Avatar f tn I know how you feel, my 16 year old son has lupus and when the lupus is active, the rash is there. The rash that shows with lupus is very classic: the face gets like a sunburn on the cheeks but the little lines that run down from either side of the nose to the corners of the mouth are normal color or even look a little white. The name for these lines is "nasolabial folds".
Avatar f tn Said yes, I do have blood and protein in urine, but not bad, but could be Lupus related. Had rash for 7 months before Plaquenil kicked in, still have muscle pain and weakness but feeling not bad . Doctor says suggests Lupus but won't commit, but also says stay on Plaquenil. Does everyone come away from these appointments feeling like a hypochondriac or is it just me. I have been feeling more like myself lately so maybe I am cured, what do you think?
Avatar f tn I'm reading Dr. Daniel Wallace's book on Lupus. This is my question? He explains that nasolabial folds are the outer parts of nose and cheek that meet upper lip and usually not affected by Lupus. This got me confused--I'm not sure if he means the skin by the nose and beside the cheek or when he says upper lip does that mean under the nose? Also he mentions that USUALLY not affected by Lupus.
Avatar f tn t want to raise any alarm bells but it sounds exactly like what my skin did before I was dx. with discoid lupus; the itching, swelling, rash, lesions. The only thing you didn't mention was the hair loss. Discoid lupus lesions will manifest in areas not actually exposed to the sun. Do hope you get a good diagnosis. I'm with kindd ~ Take care and pls do keep us posted on how you are doing. Regards.
