15+ years of fibromyalgia, now lupus??
Hello everyone! My name is Jeanne and I have been suffering for 15 years with a fibromyalgia diagnosis. This year my symptoms became much worse and the rheumatologist said that one or two of the lupus titers were elevated, but she wasn't sure...I am stiff, in terrible pain, weak and can't get up the stairs. I don't mean to be long winded, but I am feeling like I am going crazy....sores on my tongue that the dentist can't see....inflammation all over my body including vaginal disorder of vestibulitis.....I need people to share with....the only thing that I think is a possible cause is that I had 18 injections of alpha interferon 15 years ago for the vaginal inflammation...maybe a connection??? I would so appreciate any input from you guys. Thank you so much for letting me share....oh, and I am a New Yorker now living in Chicago!!!
