I was diagnosed with discoid lupus 2 days ago. I have had symptoms of SLE for around 2 years but never put the symptoms together even though my Dad had SLE!! I had biopsies on a facial lesion and when I went to see the dermy for my results I was seen by his reg. She told me it was lupus and looked for an information leaflet but couldn't find one. Her exact words to me were " You probably know more than me about this seeing as your father had lupus" I was given cream and told to return in 6-8 weeks. I insisted on having ANA test done which she agreed to.
Feeling very low at the moment :((
