I posted a while back about most of my back story and that I was being referred to a rheumatologist, so I won't go into all that again. Anyway, finally got seen by the rheumy, this is what she wrote to my DR :
The repeated lupus anticoagulant test was still positive. The auto antibodies screen has shown the presence of SMR RMP and chromatin antibodies which are seen in lupus. The double standard DNA and complement levels were normal which would suggest there is no serologically active lupus. The APTT was high, in keeping with the lupus anticoagulant test. As Stacey isn't experiencing any clinical features of lupus I do not think that these antibody tests require any further management at the current time. I will forward Stacey a leaflet about lupus so that she is aware she will have to contact her GP immediatley should she experience any symptoms of clinically active lupus lupus.
I wasn't told much more really, just given a leaflet about APS syndrome and also fibromyalgia and sent on my way. But, in the past eight weeks, I have developed redness on my cheek bones, sometimes it's only very light, other times it's very bright and obvious. Secondly, I've been getting weird rashes on my arms. Well, they're more like bumps. On my legs, it's almost like a pimple with a red ring around it. They just keep randomly appearing. I wondered if anyone could tell me if these rashes or bumps may be a sign that Lupus has become active? I was told my Dr that the rheumy says I have antibodies that are found in luous but because I was haing no symptoms it's classed as 'inactive'.
Thanks for taking the time to read! Any help would be much appreciated. I've posted some pictures below of my rash on my face, my arm, and the strange pimples ones on my legs. Thanks!
