Hello , I would be very grateful for people's thoughts on this. I have just been referred to rheumatology following a positive ANA test and symptoms that to me , point towards lupus. These include joint pain , eyebrow hairloss loss and burning rash which comes and goes over my face. Last week I suddenly felt a pain/lump in my throat as if I was going to cry but didn't feel tearfull at all. The 'pain' travelled up the back of my neck and into my head almost like a head cold. My throat and lips were very dry and I felt spaced out. This lasted a couple of days then passed. My GP thinks anxiety but I disagree. Last night the exact same happened again and I still feel unwell today. I'm expecting to wait around 3 months for my rheumatology appointment. What I would like to know is should I just ride this out or go to A & E when I have these attacks ? It's very frightening. Thanks in advance for anyone's thoughts on this.
