Hi all, this is the first time I have posted a blog. 4 weeks ago I suffered a stroke and whilst in hospital was also diagnosed with SLE (Lupus) and consequently have had numerous blood tests, I am having an echocardiogram this week, MRI on my spine and have been referred to a dermatologist and rheumotologist. I am feeling quite scared and isolated as after seeing my GP a few months ago before my stroke I asked him if he thought I could have Lupus and he laughed at me Has anyone else had a similar experience with their GP and also yesterday I had such pain in my wrists, fingers and palms that it made me cry and I do have quite a high pain threshold. Can anyone tell me is this normal for Lupus sufferers. Thankyou for reading
