Hi I am just in the process of having test done for lupus. I have been suffering from joint pain and pain pressure points. One of my GP s has sent me to a vascular surgeon to which they are operating on me in February for varicose veins. I have had both my hands operated on for carpal tunnel syndrome and I've had a hysterectomy in the last twelve months. I have been suffering from chest pains, a raised heart rate, high blood pressure, also tested positive for hyperthyroidism and low on vitamin d and waiting for ana test . On the last occasion on visiting my GP he noticed I had a butterfly rash he asked me how long I had it but I just thought it was roseacia as I had been told by another GP thats what I had and he treated me with oxytetracycline for eighteen months . Would just love to know all the test results now as I am on edge every day, but need to have a second round of blood tests in two weeks .
