Ok, I'm new here. My husband's in the army so we're stationed in Germany. I have had symptoms for the past 4 years, starting at around 15 and I'm wondering if it's lupus. The rash I don't really get that bad, but it's in the same place as the rash for lupus. Every so often I'll be sick.My glands hurt, and the aching feels almost like the flu but not. It's unbearable and I really can't do anything when this happens. I also get a fever, I don't think it's really high, but it's definitely noticeable. I have chest pain sometimes, and I have some hair loss on the sides of my hairline. Anyone else have this? When I'm not sick I'll still be really tired, but I get less tired when I'm not in the sick stage. Hope this makes sense. Is that what the muscular aches feel like? Almost like the flu? It's really hard to describe, because I never felt something like that before. Thanks for any insight or info you can give.
