Today I was finally diagnosed as having Lupus, two of my sisters have it, my mother had rheumatoid arthiritis and my father had osteo arthiritis, but according to a variety of doctors, I had growing pains, then it was hormones, then period pains then it was the menopause. I am 53 have suffered with pain all my life, as a child could not attend a school assembly because I would faint. I even had a type of pace maker fitted, because I still fainted, had low blood pressure. I then had to have a radical hysterectomy and this triggered IBS, rheumatism, and lots of other symptoms that I had before, but now were much worse. At last a diagnosis, but what now? I am scouring the net for help - today is my first day.
