Its been raining here so I'm all swollen up . My feet ,hands ,neck ,legs are pretty swollen. Lots of joint pain and really tired . But I'll live . It will be nice to know for sure if this is MS or lupus or both .
I did also get some biotin for my hair loss . Hopefully it will start working soon .
Its nice to have people that understand about this stuff and have gone through the muk of being diagnosed and re diagnosed and so on......... I'm trying to be patient thro all this but its wearing my down.
Hello daylight,
Sorry to hear it's taking longer to clear with your chest but all these symptoms come with the Disease before i was diagnosed last year ENT took me under their wing saying i had TMJ disease of the jaw, well you get all the same symptoms with with both, it sometimes makes you wonder if they know what they're doing.
I've not had the rash around the hairline or elbow but 3yrs ago my face was covered in blisters and i was put on steriod cream then off my GP before i ever saw the skin specialist and it helped, everyone kept saying it was the worry of moving home and it was'nt it was the Raynauds doing it's terrible affects but you should'nt scar as my face as'nt but everyones skin is different.
I really do hope the biotin helps with your hair, in 3yrs i've had 2 bald patches and they've re-grown back and instead i lose hair more than anyone else. I do hope they can help you quickly and give you some diagnosis to put you at peace of mind.
