Hi. I'm not sure what to write so I will start from the beginning. Over a year ago I started to feel off. Dizzy aches fatigue and just like I couldn't get rid of somthing. Had numerous tests. Low b12 came up. Was on jabs and some things went away , I regained my balance some energy returned and vertigo had gone
things seemed fine for a while but I still had the niggle somthing was not right.
Now I feel weak and tired I mean seriously tired. (Maybe because I feel a tad anxious and depressed from what's happening) my muscles are weak and I have tremors (internally and physical) my hair is thinner I have the biggest dark circles around my eyes, I look terrible (29 years old) look 80
recently I have developed hives stated on my stomach and move around my body (arms hands chest) I woke up last week with swollen hands and some pain on moving them I had hives on them too.
took myself to hospital as it was good Friday and gp was shut.. (antihistamines don't work )
doc there said my stories of symptoms and my swollen hands looks and sounds like a typical lupus story.. just had an ana dna rhp fbc b12 esr crp tests today.. awaiting my results. But I was thinking back to the things I had ignored like how my ankle joint would hurt for 10 miss then go away or how my arm has had what I describe as growing pains radiating down it on and off for 2 years.. I'm just worried sick really as I have 3 small children and I'm praying to god I don't have lupus. I had a crp and esr test a couple months back and it was normal so I'm confused . This morning I had pain in my finger at the joint with some swelling and raised hives.. am I right in thinking that lupus produces a proper rash that stays and not hives that swell and move. They've gone down now .. I'm just thinking maybe it's a reaction as I don't have the face rash or major joint pain. Thsee hives started after a had a mild stomach bug 5 weeks ago
Thanks for reading and I would love to hear what you think
