Hi all...I have not been dx with lupus yet but I have some of the symptoms and I was in the hospital for 8 days 2 months ago...that's when my doc told me, after a series of tests, that it might be lupus...I'm seeing a specialist in 3 weeks....I have joints and muscles aches....arthritis in my knees...neck and hands.....chest pain...itching....red patch on my skin....tired all the time....depression and don't get too much sleep...high blood pressure...cholesterol and I'm kind of tired of all that...So I sure hope I can get help and support from all of you guys.
