I have recently been to Rheumatology after being referred by my GP following a positive ANA result. I have now been recalled for more blood tests including Haemochromatosis due to high transferrin saturation. My Cons thought I maybe 'borderline' Lupus and I am a bit confused. My symptoms have included finger and toe joint stiffness and pain particularly in the morning and more recently wrist and elbow joint pains that seem to radiate along my arms. Also pain in my neck and shoulders and I suffer from migraines. I have hair loss and thinning around my hair line that is now very noticeable. I am extremely tired especially in the afternoons and after being abroad this year I spent nearly a week in bed due to extreme fatigue. I have redness to my nose and over my nose and slightly on both cheeks that looks like broken veins and isn't raised. I suffer from racing heart and sometimes really heavy chest. I have low blood pressure 95/60 and occasionally feel light headed and dizzy. I regularly have a sore tongue and gums and sometimes red sores inside my mouth that are not quite ulcers. Any suggestions welcome as I feel like I am in Limbo as I have been back a forth from the GP over past few years.
