Glad to hear from you Cindy. What you are experiencing right now is all too common. For many, Lupus can be a disease whose symptoms develop slowly and over a long period of time. In these cases, lab results may not be sufficient for doctors to make a definite diagnosis and symptoms may not be enough to even make a suspected guess. But, as happens often, over time, symptoms begin to develop and/or worsen and lab results begin to confirm suspicions. Doctors will then say that Lupus (or an auto-immune disorder) is probably going to be the diagnosis.
It is for these reasons that many of us believe that we suffered from symptoms of the disease for many, many years before we got our diagnosis. It is also for these reasons that I always say that, even if you have not been diagnosed, you are still more than welcome to be a part of our family. We can still help you and be here for you and try to assist you in understanding what is going on.
I hope that you do not have this disease, but if you do or you don't, please know that we are here to help you as much as we can and in any way that we can.
Peace and Blessings
Look For The Good and Praise It!
