Hi everyone, I am 47 and have Fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, multiple bulging discs, mild scoliosis, hypothyroidism, and ostephytes(bone spurs on my vertebrae). My brother recently went to ER with blood clots and was diagnosed with Lupus and Antiphospholipid Syndrome. Three years ago my sister had blood clots and experienced a Pulmonary embolism. It went to her heart and she had to be shocked twice to get her back (we were working at the hospital, she would have died if I hadn't been there to get help. We were the only 2 nurses on our floor.) I've been coloring with map pencils for a couple days and today my hand is so swollen and painful that I can't even make a loose fist. I have an appt with my PVP tomorrow and wondering if I should get tested for Lupus...?
