I am new on here although I have used the endometriosis site for a while. I have been suffering with my health on and off for about 4 years now. For the last 3 I have been treated for endometriosis although a recent laparoscopy was negative for it. I have been having recurrent bad mouth ulcers for the past year and have been checked for various things including allergies but over the past month I have not got rid of them. At the moment I have 5 large ones. I also have a red rash on my cheeks and nose, have bad Raynaud's syndrome and ache in my finger, wrist and knee joints. Plus I could literally fall asleep standing up. I went to my GP this morning expecting to get fobbed off again but she sent me straight to the hospital for blood tests and I noticed she has put connective tissue disease including sle. When I looked this up I noticed it was lupus. I have been reading up about it trying not to do the 2+2=5 scenario but the more I read the more I fit the symptoms. I have had acid reflux for about a year and I suffer from scabs on scalp and hair loss plus vertigo. The GP has requested I see her in a few weeks time to discuss my results and she said she would look at referring me to various specialists. Its almost as if she is second guessing the results. Am I reading too much into this or do these symptoms sound very familiar?
Thanks for reading
