hello all, new to board
I am new to the board. I have had a low-grade fever for several months and swollen lymph nodes, and a rash and swelling around my eyes.
I saw an internist 2 weeks ago who did a blood test, and my ANA was high so I am being referred to a neurologist, and that apt. isn't until Sept.29, hurry up and wait.
I also have severe migraines which have gotten worse. Is this a symptom of Lupus?
I have severe back problems having been hit by two drunk drivers in my life, the last was 5 yrs ago. I just had L4-5 fusion surgery 6 months ago, and have a herniated disc at T7-8, and C5-6.
I get massages and chiropractic treatment regularly, but none of it seems to help, it's like my muscles get tight and turn to stone.
Is this caused from Lupus? I did some reading on it online, but didn't see in depth details.
Any responses are welcome.
I had an ANA test which my internist said was high and he is referring me to a Neurologist for further testing. He is concerned I have Lupus because of the testing and the symptoms.
