Hello everyone :bigsmile:

My daughter & I went to see a children's rheumatologist yesterday & I'm delighted to say that my daughter is fine!! :yahoo:

After a very thorough examination the rheumy put her symptoms down to growing pains & viruses :)..she did think her skin was quite mottled and also red & purplish but not enough to be concerned about at the moment.she ruled out raynards due to her having no problems with her finger tips & her hands/feet don't go white either.

Regarding her positive ANA she explained it could have been due to a virus? & other children can also have a positive result but it doesn't necessarily mean there is anything autoimmune going on...she seemed quite shocked that my GP had said she would definitely develop lupus because of it! :grrr: and she reassured me that there was only a very small possibility of this happening.

However, She did request some further blood tests for chelsea to see whether she would get another positive result & also other specific blood tests for APS due to my sister having it...I thought she had already had the APS test? but forgot to ask :rolleyes:

So all in all a very pleasing appointment :) and as you can imagine we are very relieved indeed!!
Thankfully chelsea took the whole experience in her stride & it doesn't seem to have affected her in the slightest! :)


I would like to thank you all again for your amazing support! you kept me sane!!!:grhug:
love & best wishes to you all...karen x x

Always best to get your worries checked out. Glad its good news.
My daughter had similar symtoms to me for a few weeks and you immediately think.. Oh My God Lupus. Hers has turned out to be a virus too but you cant help worrying.

Excellent news Karen! :):) Im so glad that your Rheumy was reassuring.

I hope the rest of the rest results are fine and even if they do come back with some queries, it sounds like you have a very sensible specialist there who is looking at all possibilities.

Good for Chelsea, taking it all in her stride. Kids are so resilient :)

Luv n stuff

That's very good news Karen :bigsmile: It's best to get things checked out!

The waiting is very stressful, but it sounds like your Rheumy is being very thorough and that everything is going to turn out ok :)

Kids do tend to take these things in their stride, I remember when I had my own daughter checked out she was the same. Giving up blood with gay abandon :lol: and reassuring them she was ok they should just get on with it! ;)

Good luck with that further testing.

love
Lily

Thank you so much ladies :grouphug2::love: I really appreciate your kind words!!
yes I do feel as if a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders :)

we have to go back & see her in 8 weeks but she said she would get in touch with me if she's concerned about the results...If I hear anything I will let you know but I'm confident that they will be fine :)

thanks again :grhug:
