lupus and families
most people believe that sle like many other auto-immune illnesses are heriditary and are seen in more than one person in a family.
personally i have a cousin on each side of my family with sle and my father recently told my sister that my grandmother(his mother) had lupus. he said it wasn't diagnosed but that she had many of the same symptoms that i haave and was ill all the time when he was a child.
it's probably something you need to tell your reumatologist.
good luck at your next doctors appointment. i hope they can make a definite diagnoses.
