Can I trouble you for your thoughts?
A little back history. I am a 41 year old bloke who was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and Primary Sclerosing Colangitis in 2003.
Recently my eyes went very yellow and long story short I've been told everything from cancer to possible liver transplant to autoimmune hepatitis.
I've just had a letter from my gastro which was just a copy of a letter sent to my GP. Anyway it states my ASA was 1:5120 with nuclear homogeneous staining pattern and IgG elevated at 29.1
Always trying to keep myself in the know I went to Dr Google. Lupus kept cropping up. And when I looked at some of the symptoms things started to sound familiar. I've been to the GP over joint pain in my hands, I've suffered from Raynaulds Syndrome In the past, I often get mouth ulcers, I have quite odd skin on my arms and neck, not a rash as such I've always called it my reptile skin.
Does any of this shout to any one as Lupus? Am I just being a hypochondriac?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
