OK so the media is covering a few stories on this diease and their was one that really caught my eye today. A girl with lupus who was bitten by a tick could have Lyme. Now I have done my research on this and strongly all my symptoms point to Lyme, I too have been diagnosed with Lupus but can't remember any tick bites but again, these symptoms just cropped up. Again I am on usual medication for lupus and still have good or bad days. However lupus and lyme both can have the butterfly rash and organ involvement...now I'm starting to wonder. On the other hand to me it wouldn't see like the end of the world but all though I can test for it if it comes back negative it doesn't mean I haven't got it, so how can I ever know I'm really worried and would rather know the right diease so I can look for a consultant. Can anyone help me if they know something that Lupus does that lyme doesn't any help would be well and truly appreciated on this one.
