Hi, Im 14 years old and I have had problems since I was 3 years old. I have had bladder issues, alopecia (hair falls out), anemia, ear infections, I had kidney problems to the point I was about 24 HRS from my kidneys failing, constant UTI`s, fatigue, a slight but not noticable unless you were looking butterfly rash, extreme knee and hip pain, as well as when I was on a recent vacation I got a rash on either side of my torso from sun tanning. I have been told by eveybody well youll grow out of your problems, or we dont know. Sick Kids in Toronto even told me I was their most challenging urology case ever and they said they don`t know whats wrong. Me and my mom have been doing everything from naturopaths, to acupuncture, to spiritual work, to mainstream mdicine and we were looking for an idea of a diagnosis online and we came across lupus out of the 11 signs doctors look at I have about 5 of them. I really don`t know whats going on but I really want some answers. Does this sound like lupus?

Does this sound like lupus?Yes, but you need to find a doctor who will look at the full medical picture, even things that you dont think to tell them are signs, I was 38 before I was diagnosed and had the same things you do, find the lupus online support group for your area/nation, Im in the uk so mine isnt relevent for you. Register with them, talk to them and ask them who they recommend that you see. A lot of doctors do specialise in lupus so while it may be frustrating now, you will find someone who can help.
