  1. Hello! My name is Erika and I'm a 37 year old just diagnosed with what they "think" is Lupus and IGA deficiency. I've had chronic respiratory infections my entire life and started having severe and chronic mouth and tongue ulcers over the past three years. After three years of seeing different docs, my immunologist confirmed IGA deficiency and the rheumotologist confirmed Lupus. What's weird is that I have negative ANA panels. However, I have a low "C3" level and am on Plaquenel and Prednazone. In the past three years I've been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, nephritis of the kidney and much more. However, I run 3 miles a day, eat healthy and look great from the outside. Everyone thinks "I look fine" and thinks I'm a I've been really depressed. Does anyone know about "C3" levels or do any of my symptoms make sense? I'm really lost and hoping for help. Thanks for taking the time to read my post!
