Hi forum,

My name is Jen, I'm in my late 20s, with 1 child. I have had 7 miscarriages, including a twin/molar pregnancy this past March.

It seems after I miscarry I develop a Lupus flare and did so after the birth of my daughter as well.

I am waiting to see my rheumatologist on the 13th of June and am surviving on prednisone and good will at the moment. This flare is particularly bad giving me limited mobility of major joints.

I'm getting horrible hot flashes at night and cannot sleep at all.

My ANA is constantly negative, among a few other blood tests, which is annoying my GP and he insists I fit the Lupus SLE criteria perfectly otherwise.

I have this horrible fear that when I see the rheumatologist he will laugh and tell me nothing is wrong and I'll feel this way forever.

So that's me in a nutshell. I look forward to learning as much as I can.
