Hi all, I have recently been diagnosed with SLE after countless visits to various doctors over the past 7 years which has been a nightmare. Although, the rheumatologist couldn't give a 100% diagnosis as I only had high anti double strand DNA antibodies and high ANAs. My inflammatory marker test came up normal, and because this was normal she said I don't meet the 'criteria' for lupus?? Bizarre. I have been given hydroxychloroquine which I've been taking for about 2 weeks. Sorry to be so blunt about one of my many symptoms, but does anyone suffer with vaginal dryness and lack of libido as one of their symptoms? I'm wondering if this will correct itself when the tablets have kicked in? I think there is some kind of hormonal imbalance which doesn't seem to be correcting itself but I'm hoping that these tablets might correct things. I'm only 36 and haven't been able to have a relationship for 7 years because of this It has been absolutely devastating for me as I feel that I'm going to be alone forever due to this illness. I hope someone can help me.
