Last year I started feeling poorly, red rash, joint pain and feeling extremely tired. At first I thought it was just a reaction to something until I started to feel very poorly, Like having the flu. I went to see several doctors who were not sure what was wrong so they sent me to a rheumatologist, who then started testing for Lupus.
Its been over a year of tests, constant pain which can sometimes last 2-3 weeks. There has been strange things like my lips going numb, hair falling out and my nails peeling. But no diagnosis as to what is wrong with me. I have had several positive ANA results but weak according to the rheumy. And after this last blood test they have given me now yearly checkups.
I was wondering is anyone knows anything more I can do ? Ibuprofen can only do so much (pretty much nothing). I am at University and I work which is something I have struggled with over the year. Work doesn't seem to understand how much pain I am in some days and uses the phrase " You are young" all the time.
Sorry if this seems to be a bit of a rant , just not sure what else I can do.
