Maaaannnn.... it's driving me crazy....
I was suffering chest pains and went to the hospital for a chest scan... I was told that I have multiple blood clots in my lungs... so started taking 10mg wharfarin as advised and Clexane injections for the first week of treatment.
I've had blood test after blood test, including lupus... all came back negative...
Then my hair started falling out... in patched.... quickly... and only have 50% of my hair... (in six months)
I know that Wharfarin affects the results of a Lupus test and I've recently stopped taking wharfarin to be re-tested... currently awaiting the results but I'm still half expecting it to be negative again.
I'm also now in so much pain now too from my joints, especially the soles of my feet, I'm almost constantly in agony.
I'm told that due to some other factors, I'll be on wharfarin for life.
Given that so many posts indicate that diagnosis is so difficult, does anyone else have an opinion on my situation????..... Have I got Lupus or not!!!?
Thanks in advance for any advice out there!!.
