I am hoping that I can find help on this site. I have a complete lack of medical advise from my Doctors Office. About 2 weeks ago I had a sore throat and swelling to my right lymph node under the base of my jaw. The sore throat resided very quickly. 4 days later, I awoke to find 3 patches of hair that had come out in my sleep. I developed a cold sore on my upper lip and tounge. My lips chaped very easily. I went to the Dr. and the only test that came back positive was the AMA. This is vindicitive of auto inumune disorders and lymphomia. Today, I noticed right sided tenderness where my occipital lymph nodes are located.
My brother has lupus, which is hereditary. I have been tested in the past and the results negative. The only symptom that I have that is similar to my brothers during a flair up is the hair loss. My doctor is stuck on the fact that it is lupus and is not wanting to do any other test until I see a Rhematologist....which is not going to be possible for another month. Any advise on what I sould do.
