Please help.
I have had the most bizzare array of symtoms and wish to get an input if it's possible to be lupus.

-body aches
-recently diagnosed with Raynaud's Syndrome
-foot and calf pain
-hand and wrist pain
-painful and still joints on movement
-muscle aches
-fever and chills
-rash on hands and some on feet
-sores at the corners of the mouth
-sores inside my nose
-weight loss
-localized nerve irritation- side of my left leg looses sensation
-sharp pains on the left side of my left knee, also in right side of left foot
-sharp pains in stomach

These came at random times, some of them are constant.
Possibly something I want to ask the docs to test for?

  • It's very possible. I'm having a similiar list of bizzare symptoms, plus much more, and just getting the run around. The symptoms come and go and change. It's driving me insane. I'm educating myself on this and other forums.Hang in there.

  • It could be possible you could have lupus, but there are many other things out there that are almost like lupus symptom-wise. Your best bet is go to a rhuematologist, get tests, let him/her assess your symptoms. If the first rheumatologist doesn't work out and they don't believe you, etc., don't give up, go to another rheumatologist. You might have went to several different doctors and have gotten many tests before you get a diagnosis. It is very hard in the beginning to get any diagnosis due to many factors, so hang in there, it can sometimes be years before you get a diagnosis of lupus or any autoimmune problem for that matter.
