Iâ€™ll be going to the doctor next week to find out if I definitely have lupus. I have all of the obvious symptoms, most notably the â€œbutterflyâ€ or malar rash. Iâ€™m glad to know that my symptoms arenâ€™t all in my head, as my DH suspected, but have a real root cause. I donâ€™t know what to expect if I should get a lupus diagnosis, but Iâ€™m ok with it.
Iâ€™ve been living with fatigue and pain for a long time. The rash is new since I had the baby. That was the most bothersome thing to me recently, because I thought I had developed an allergy to something and couldnâ€™t figure out what it was. Now I know that lupus causes photosensitivity and the rash is just my immune system going crazy.
I like geeky stuff, politics, squirrels and monkeys.
