Bit long winded but please bear with me. I fear I have lupus but any mention to docs is met with a raised eyebrow etc... ok,here goes. I get an unmistakable butterfly rash, joint pain usually feet ankles shin area and fingers, sometimes shoulders elbows. Fatigue and tiredness I feel mostly like I've not slept and wake up more tired than when I went to bed. I appear to be sensitive to sunlight, it makes me feel not right ? I feel much better in the shade. I have been on medication for depression. I have bowel pains and never toilet normal, I seem to suffer short term memory loss and can't remember what I'm doing / where I'm going, I have coeliac disease (auto immune) I've been on prednisolone and cyclosporin for six years with auto immune eye problems, my hair hurts ? Particularly facial hair, I feel pain in each individual hair folical ?? I seem to cycle up and down with these symptoms over say a three month period ish. I'm kind of lost.... the only thing I keep arriving at is Lupus, the eye doc did give me a blood test once to shut me up but I read somewhere that you shouldn't be on meds when being tested however I'm on immunosuppressive drugs.... erm...help ? Have I got Lupus ? Thanks for any help / input and taking the time to read my rambling. X oh and I forgot, the doc I see about coeliac tells me I have a enlarged liver ???
