Hello All!
I have had Lupus now for 2 years and just recently had to add Prednisone and Mobic to my daily pill regimin. My 15 yo daughter began exibiting signs/symptons so I took her to her PCP and asked for an ANA to be run. Well, it came back positive! 1:1280 titer in homogeneous and speckled patterns. We have an appointment with the same rhuematologist who is treating me for next Thursday. Her main complaints are foot and hand pain along with sores in her nose.

Hi AmyR; It is not uncommon for Mother and Daughter to have Lupus. It often happens that the diseases are completely different in each other - so your symptoms may not resemble hers at all. However, she is lucky to have a mother who is knowledgeable about the disease and who can help her with some of her issues. I am glad that you joined us and we are here to help both you and your daughter in any way that we can. Welcome to our family!! Peace and Blessings - Namaste: SAYSUSIE
