Hi, I am just doing some research about lupus because I am almost positive that I have this disorder. I thought it'd be good to sign up on this site and talk to people who do have the disease so that I could get more information.

Blood Tests

Hi there. I am new to the site too.

Have you had any blood tests done yet? I would definently ask your doctor to run your ANA and test you for all blood clotting factors.

Good luck.

Hello there and welcome to the site,

I agree with Jen. Have you had the ANA test run? Have you been referred to a rheumatologist yet?

What sort of symptoms are you experiencing?

There is a wealth of information and support here. Sorry for the questions but it's easier for us to help if we know a little more...

bye for now,
Katharine

Hello, You are very welcome here.
Could I just say please be careful in your research as there is a lot of very gloomy old information on Lupus on the net and in old books, which could scare you silly!!!

Treatments do move on and generally the outlook is better than even five years ago.
Best Wishes,
