I have suffered with a horrible skin complaint for 10 years and have seen many dermatologists, I saw a new specalist from London on Friday and he told me I had SLE and has put me on Hydroxychloroquine, 1 a day for 2 weeks then 2 a day. He said that this was a sympton of Lupus so do I have Lupus?? I have looked on the internet for information and all the symptons, I have had unusual fatigue levels for years and have periods where i have been unable to function, I have joint pains have suffered from alopecia over the years and I am currently having investigations for a unusal enzyeme in my liver! He just said ' if you have this skin complaint you have Lupus' I have to have a whole host of blood tests tomorrow and I have had an eye test which was fine. Would welcome comments, I have known for years that I did not have the energy levels of a normal woman, I am 52 by the way! thanks Carol x
