I appreciate that members here can't offer medical advice, but wonder if anyone might be able to offer any practical advice please?
I have a diagnosis of ME currently. I now have a malar rash over my nose and have done for over six month, which is not an ME symptom. More recently I developed a weird series of circles on my left cheek which won't go away.
I saw a GP who said 'possibly Lupus' and ordered blood tests four weeks ago.
I saw a different GP yesterday, who told me that the tests were negative, " so that's okay", and gave me antibiotics for the rashes. My CRP levels are raised, but have been so for several years and none of the GPs I have seen seem concerned. My BP is now borderline high, whereas it wasn't in the past.
Is it possible that the blood tests were wrong? Don't get me wrong, it's not that I want to have it, but I'm becoming really self conscious about the marks on may face, and need to be sure.
Any suggestions gratefully received, thank you. I am in the UK, if that makes any difference as to the tests available.
