Hi everyone. I'm a new member so this is my first post. I,ve been diagnosed with undifferentiated connective tissue disease but on my notes i,ve noticed it always says lupus in brackets afterwards. When I asked about this I was told it wasn't full blown lupus yet but I had signs and symptoms of it. This has been going on for about 5 yrs now and i,m gradually needing more hydroxychlorine to get through my 4hrs as a nursery nurse a day. I haven't had my bloods done for over a year though so surely I could have full blown lupus by now? Im having a lot of trouble with constant coughs, ear ache on one side and recurring tonsilitis + quinsy but not sure if this s anything to do with the lupus/CTD. Has anyone e else got throat problems.? (Always seem to cough up lots of nasty yellow/green phlegm and not sure whether to see someone about it) I don't like to go to the docs just with tonsilitis but unsure f it could become a problem cos of the CTD. Any one got any advice please?
