Hi, I'm a 32 yr old female with almost all the symptoms of lupus. However, when I first went for bloodwork for autoimmune disorders, I had only a couple of the symptoms, joint pain, swelling, hypermobility and some skin problems. I didn't have a follow-up appt until 5 weeks later, which is now.
I now have alot of symptoms in addition: vasculitis, reynauds, lesions, swelling all over, UTI's, eye problems, twitching, hand tremors. My question is, since I wasn't having a flare at the time of the tests, which came back neg for ANA, could I still have it and it just may not have shown up back then? I was really convinced that I had lupus after the amount of research I have done, but still think it could be RA or lyme also.
Can anyone help?
