Hi there, I've just been diagnosed with Pernicious Anemia and Vit D deficiency also low iron, I'm still wating on more test results and appointment for immunology, I was previously diagnosed with M.E & Fibromyalgia, I feel awful as per usual but feel I'm finally getting somewhere after taking a classic lupus butterfly rash on my face and rushing to the doctors 2 day's later in a full panic attack, not pretty ! Once the doctor had calmed me down I let rip telling him I'd had enough of my health problems and that something needs to be done, I said look at my face, the weight i've lost & then pulling my trousers down to show him the muscle wastage at my hip & buttock & saying to him I'm 44 next week have been out the house 5 times in the last 2 years as I'm so embarrassed by the hair loss, loss of balance, staggering, slurred speach, words coming out entirely wrong, numb hands & feet, odema in my feet, ankles and calfs, not to mention the constant pain and feeling faint, I could go on with symptoms but basically I told him my life has been turned upside down for years & I know there's something wrong & the medical profession is missing it, I said look at my history, heart & liver problems with everything else above, that's when he took note & I'm being treated for pernicious anaemia & Vitamin D deficiency. Now I feel like I might actually be getting somewhere after all this time, Sorry about the long post but I'm wanting to know if anyone that has Lupus has had any of these symptoms, diagnosis ? I haven't mentioned all my symptoms as this post would end up like a badly written novel as I'm dyslexic so my grammar isn't the best, thanks in advance.
