    Default hi

    After almost 10 years of search, I got a diagnosis early this year: hms/ eds (ehlers danlos hypermobilitysyndrome) That was a relieve.. at last a name for it.
    Entill.. last week my doctor send me home with a labratory note to test for lupus.
    i don't now if I have it?

    I am also know with, hashimoto thyroiditis, asthma/ lungproblems. Skin problems, rash, itching. Mostly on my face and upper torso/arms, sometimes on my legs. concentration en short time memory problems (always thought due to a whiplash?)
    Am semi wheelchair needy, (can walk only small bits) muscle (strenght) problems/ tired.

    Hope I don't have it, and will go back to my first diagnose, but i am searching for information about lupus.

    Welcome to this site Jenneke. Let us know what the test results are. Have a look around some threads to help you to understand a bit about what it is like to live with Lupus.

    Hello Jenneke;
    Welcome to our family. I am sorry to hear that you are dealing with so many issues. However, you have come to the right place if you want to learn about Lupus. I, too, hope that you do not have it. But we are more than happy to give you as much information as you need and to answer any questions that you may have.
    I am glad that you found us!

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste

    I want to add to what Teri said. Teri (gem) mentioned the wonderful people and how helpful that this site is but I would like to expand on that a bit. Even if you find that you don't have Lupus or you have to keep waiting to find out you are welcome here. The name of the site is "we have lupus" but people that are not yet diagnosed, people diagnosed with other autoimmune issues, or people that have a diagnosis of Lupus are all welcome and supported here.

    The people here have helped me in more ways than I can count and I hope we can be helpful to you as well.
