hello, I've diagnosed with beginning of lupus, my antinuclear antibodies are positive, I have reynaud's, joint pains, muscle pains and night sweats but no temperature, I've been struggling with these sympotms about more than a year, I also have had several times tifo, and stomach infections, I thought that it was just the symptoms of tifo, but then everytime I got tests ran, my antinuclear antibodies appeared way positive.
so after being in a journey with several doctors, and specilists, I got diagnosed lupus, but they tell me is not developed yet at its fullest thats why all the other specific results of lupus appear negative, but my symtoms are real. so the doctor prescribed me hidroxicloraquina, vitamin d, and zinc, I've been taking these for 3 weeks now, but I want to know how much do you improove with these and is it possible to stop the lupus from developing? what other care tips do I have to take in consideration besides avoiding the sun???
I've been also kind of down because some of my family members don't believe in the diagnose of lupus, they always tell me you look fine, and you just want attention, all you have to do is to eat a lot, because you are very thin and look bad. and Iam way healthy I weight 99.2 lbs and I'am 1.58cm, besides I don't have a vitamin deficency and don't have anemia, my apetite has deecresed a little but I still manage to do 3 meals and 2 snacks daily.
I'am so tired of loved ones telling me That I'am a liar and that I'am not sick, I wish that was true.
