  1. Symptoms
    Has anyone else had issues with joints falling out of place in their sleep? I am diagnosed with lupus, RA and a few other things, I also have mutiple hyper extendable joints. At first, it was just my index finger on my right hand, I would wake up in the morning and I would have zero mobility in...
  2. Symptoms
    For the past two years, I’ve had migraines almost every night. They start around 6 pm and no medications can stop them, the only thing that works is sleep. Sometimes Aspirin helps the pain but no other pain pills do anything (Motrin, Tylenol, Alleve, etc.). They tend to come with a low-grade...
  3. Not Diagnosed Yet?
    Hi! Super new here and embarassed to be posting as I feel like this is very far fetched to be wondering! A few days ago I noticed this very faint rash on my face. It is not very noticeable at all and just looks like a bit of a flushed face which I typically get, however, it has lasted a few days...
  4. Introduce yourself
    Hello. So I’ve been having skin problems mainly eczema for about 4 years. I’m a 19 year old female. The dermatologist referred me to have an ANA blood test because he said sometimes the dark marks on my body and open lesions is a sign of lupus. My test came back positive and he said something...
  5. Symptoms
    I'll try to post a pic and I need to know what this is?? Is this the mylar rash, or something else?? I hope that it will post it right. It's reddder than it looks on here, but the camera likes to try to even out the colors for some reason.
  6. Not Diagnosed Yet?
    The week of Aug. 13th I developed a low grade fever. I felt a little ill with it but nothing that would warrant a dr. visit. This fever lasted for about 4 days. A few days later I noticed my thumb joint was sore and movement in it would make it worse, but I assumed maybe I had used my phone too...

    Hello everyone! My name is Kat, I'm 30, happily married to my husband who suffers from ulcerative colitis and I have an amazing nine year old son. My story begins when I was much younger although I was only recently diagnosed. I have always had an aversion to the sun and have been accused...
  8. Not Diagnosed Yet?
    I have yet to be diagnosed over seven years of on-and-off symptoms. From what I have read, all my symptoms (or the majority) correlate with lupus. However, my rheumatologist seems to think differently despite what my mother and family doctor believe. I was told I may never be diagnosed unless I...

  10. Introduce yourself
    Hey- Diagnosed in July after 349 days of complete hell. Went through the whole "you're just stressed," "it's just a migraine," "you have cancer," "we don't know how to help you," shebang before I was finally diagnosed with lupus. My main symptoms are a headache that never ever goes away, the...
  11. Introduce yourself
    Hi! I'm a 32 year old female, diagnosed with Hashimoto's 2 or 3 years ago. Well, lingering symptoms led my GP to run a connective tissue profile and some flags were raised. I'm hoping to get the opinions of some more educated people. I only know what I've googled. I went and saw my rheumy but...
  12. Relationships & Lupus
    Hey guys, So I'm new to the whole being diagnosed thing and I am struggling in terms of my health (I can't remember the last time I felt OK). But despite that I am a very sociable outgoing young girl who is still wanting to go out and meet guys (and possibly even go on dates). My issue is...
