hi my names Bex, im 22 and live in cornwall, Uk :thumbs:

iv not yet been diagnosed with lupus but many of my symptoms seem similar.
iv been ill for the past 8 months and have had to give up work and deffer uni for a yr :(
im really struggling at the moment as iv seen a few specialists so far -
Immunologist - diagnosed possible Chronic fatigue
Endocrinologist - didnt know what was wrong!?

My gp suspect Chronic fatigue but says she has a niggling feeling theres another process going on. Im starting to get really down as im not getting any better and getting no answers either :worried:

Iv posted in the 'Not yet diagnosed' forum under 'Opinions Please', Id be really grateful of any advice

Hi Bex,

I'm sorry you are not getting better and that you had to defer your uni.
I hope you have family support to look after you.
The only advice I have is, don't give up. Keep searching,, even if you have to see other doctors.
I think a lot of us have gone through the process of seeing one doctor after another without any answers. I know i have. I've had many tests and seen so many different doctors to find out months later that i have lupus.
When you do find out you will probably feel happy yet scared at the same time. Happy you finally got a diagnosis and scared because you don't know what is coming next.
Stay strong,,, keep pluggin and you will receive and answer and help soon.

Take Care
