I already have CFS/ME, underactive thyroid, vit B12 and D deficiency. In the last few years I have noticed somethimes when I didn't feel so good (tired, achey, funny throat etc) I would have a red patch on one of my cheeks. I have even mentioned this to my doctor but she made no comment.
I have been feeling really tired achey, and dizzy at times for the last 10 days almost feeling like I had the flu as at times I was felt hot and cold (no rise in temperature though) and on some days I would have a partial red cheek.
Yesterday I woke up my a right cheek felt like it was on fire and the rash looked like a butterfly wing. Only my right cheek was affected. When I washed my hair the water felt warm on one side of my face and cold on the other.
Is it possible to have Lupus and the rash only comes on one side or am I worrying about nothing. Is there a specific test for Lupus which would rule it in or out that I can ask my doctor for.
Any comments appreciated please as to what I should do. I can probably guarantee that I can't get a GP appointment and the rash to appear at the same time.
I did take this photo yesterday.
