Hello, my name is Karen and I am new to this site so bear with me please. First I want to thank everyone for this great site it has already been very helpful. A few years ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Irritable Bowel so I have had pain and fatigue for many years. Recently a lot more things have come up and it has me worried. My father and aunt (his sister) both have Lupus different kinds though and have both agreed that my recent symptoms are all right in line with theirs. My hair is falling out at record pace. I have many ulcers in my mouth. I am very sensitive to the sun and have a sun rash as well. I have terrible headaches, intestinal pain, low grade fevers and to top it all off I recently noticed my cheeks and nose are very red. When I went to my doctor he ordered an Ana test that came back negative and naturally I am very frustrated. Has anyone else been through this as well and if so what is your opinion on what is happening. I have appointments with several specialists coming up and just want some relief from all this pain. Any help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance for any you can give.

Many prayers....Karen
