I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and ME but I am worried that I actually have lupus. I think its maybe because of my mum that I am scared, I dont know. My mum was diagnosed with Lupus and then the diagnosis was changed to Churg Strauss Syndrome.
I have had a blood test for Lupus ordered by my GP which came back clear. However each blood test I have my inflammation markers are slightly raised which my GP says is nothing to worry over. I am in so much pain each day, especially in my chest and back. I am also extremely fatigued all the time. I have noticed that I am losing hair from my scalp but not sure if this is in anyway related. I am facing having to give up work, something I desperately dont want to do but I am not coping even with part time hours.
How were you diagnosed with Lupus and what symptoms did/do you have please?
Thanks very much for taking the time to read this
