I have recently been diagnosed after realizing I have had lupus for 4 years. My symptoms are not very bad currently. I have some finger swelling and skin rashes. Unfortunately my anti DNA is high and I have tested positive for the lupus anti coagulent. I had a miscarriage two years ago, but I now have a healthy 8 month old little girl. I am still trying to process all of this. My doctor has assured me it is a positive sign that my symptoms have relatively stayed the same for the past four years, but I am so worried because I know I am at an increased risk for kidney (organ) involvement as well as strokes, more miscarriages,etc. I am trying to stay positive, but I am really scared about having this disease for the rest of my life. I am 31, but I have probably had this since I was 26. I have enjoyed this site. Thanks!!
