My 10 year old daughter has ITP (an autoimmune bleeding disorder) and I'm concerned that another autoimmune condition is going on too. She has had pain in her feet, ankles, knees, fingers and wrists for over a year. The haematologist said he wasn't quite sure what it was so sent her to a see the rheumatologist. She checked my daughter and took bloods. The bloods came back fine so she said it's not lupus or arthritis and refered her to a physio who she saw today. At first the physio was thinking an autoimmune cause, but then she saw that the bloods were fine so she said that her joints are very stiff and has given her exercises to do and then return in 3 weeks for more exercises.
She is always extremely fatigued which stops her doing lots of things. She gets lots of headaches, mottled skin and watery eyes and recently feeling dizzy.
All of these thing appear to be symptoms of lupus, but is it possible to have lupus if the bloods came back fine?
