new today, with a question
I'm 40 and I'm being checked for Lupus. It all started when I went to the dr. a couple of days ago about a facial rash. He gave me an ANA blood test which I've just learned was positive. This morning I went for further blood tests and I have no results yet but I'm trying to gather information in case I do get the dx.
I've read that there's speculation that symptoms are caused by certain medications or hormones and wonder if anyone has any personal experience with that or can recommend a website that lists the possible culprits.
I had a full hysterectomy 3 years ago and have been taking estrogen with a bit of testosterone as HRT ever since; I also began taking an antidepressant/anti-anxiety med three months ago.
I'd appreciate any info anyone has to offer to help me muddle through as I await my results.
