I have not been diagnosed as yet, but lupus has been mentioned as a possibility, I am under extreme stress at the moment, I could be homeless in a few weeks, as my landlady is selling the house we rent, and being on benefits makes trying to rent very hard.
Both my husband and I are in bad health, I am on high mobility DLA, and he is waiting to see a specialist for severe arthritis in several areas, which is rapidly getting worse, and even though I have tried , I can't get a job, employers see my problems and I can tell it puts them off, I can't blame them, my doctor has told me I cannot work as it is unsafe for me to do so, I run the risk of paralysis, because of spinal problems that they are not willing to operate on as I can still walk a bit.
I have a red rash across my nose and cheeks, and a bit on my forehead, which is getting worse since I heard I have to move, I wondered if lupus is affected by stress, or if it is just me,
I have had blood tests, I am not sure what for exactly, because I get very bad chest and stomach pain, for which I have been prescribed Omneprazole at the highest dose, twice daily, with unexplained fevers that come and go rapidly, and severe ectopic heartbeats most of the time, I take 5mg of beta blockers, which do not stop them completely.
A lot of other symptoms including dizzy spells tinnitus, Raynauds, joint pain, and restless leg syndrome with jerks all over the place, sleeping or awake, also dry eyes and mouth, skin and my nails are almost disintegrating, first time in my life.
Don't no what to do, I wish I just knew what other than stress and back problems is wrong with me! I feel sometimes I am not being taken seriously, and I am in constant pain.
Thanks, I went on a bit there, sorry!
I hope you are as well as possible,
