Hi, so my story..... A few years a ago I started having symptoms which started with.... White spots on my tongue with mild pain, severe hair loss, rash along my for head with crusting at times, scalp flare ups with bumps and burning feeling, rash across my nose and cheeks, joint, muscle pain, cold sensitivity and some others. So I finally decided to go to the doc where they did an extensive blood panel which showed a positive ANA. Well the doc told me I have Hashimotoes (autoimmune disease of thyroid). I have immediate family with SLE and other autoimmune disorders. So my question is could this be the beginning of lupus and just attacking my thyroid?? I thought a positive ANA meant lupus. I feel like doctors don't care to get to the issue. Not able to see a rheumatologist for a couple of years due to waiting list or derm. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. TIA!!!
