    Default Diagnosed MS think I have Lupus

    So over a year ago I was diagnosed with MS after my leg lost almost all functionality after going crazy on the elliptical but on Monday I spent a few hours in the sun and got a single burning rash on my foot which looks like this.



    I've had strange abrasions from being in the sun before (usually one or two) so I think it might be Lupus. If you guys could give me your opinion before I schedule the doctors oppiontment I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks

    Since none of us here are doctors the thing I am going to tell you is that you need to see a doctor. There are several types of Lupus, one being discoid Lupus, that do leave disc shaped rashes but none of us can tell you if that is what it is.

    Please go see a doctor and get some medicine for it.

    Hi:
    As Tgal mentioned, none of us are doctors so we cannot give you an opinion as to what it might be. There are so many different rashes in Lupus and so many different forms of Lupus as well as over 60 different auto-immune disorders with similar symptoms. I agree with Tgal, it is important that you see your doctor about this so that you can get some type of answer and start some type of treatment. Please let us know what you and your doctors decide.

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste
