Hello everyone, as I said in my 1st post, I had been diagnosed with DLE. I wondered if it was progressing to SLE but never went to a rheumatologist due to not having many in my area, and the ones that are do not accept my insurance. As the months progressed, I've have SLE symptoms but shrugged them off. One day I woke up partially blind in my right eye. It looked as if I were looking thru a lens smeared in Vaseline. I go to the opthamologist, and he notes that I have Sjogren's & told me 2 come back in a few days 4 more testing. I was scheduled Tuesday where I did more visual test, & test results showed significant visual loss in right eye, so he wanted me 2 see a specialist the next day, so I did. The specialist did a test where they inject dye into my veins & take pictures of my eye. The results showed a filler in right eye & he also said the arm to eye time was too long so he ordered me a carotid Doppler test & wants me to see another Dr. for an MRI. I feel discouraged. Has anyone had a similar experience? Note: I have not taken any meds for the DLE, as I'm just getting told I have been approved for health insurance.
