Hi I was diagnosed with lupus a month ago,i am still waiting for my call back from my ru dr? I was just taking meds for under active thyroid,bypolar,Xanax,!then out of nowhere the joints in my hands started hurting so my dr tested my for arthritis said it was negative but i had lupus! My question is could the blood work be wrong because of all the meds i was taking together? Making it medical induced lupus or do i really have lupus?my regular dr when on an put me on lupus meds till i can get in to the ru dr,but i feel worse on all the meds. So if i have lupus i have had only 1 or 2 days without hurting in a month an a half.is that normal for me to hurt all the time?and to hurt really really bad at least 5 days out of the week every week? I don't know what to do! Stop taking all the meds an see if i get better or just go with the first blood work and dr that i have lupus??!!
