Long story, but will give the short version. Had first baby Jan 29th by emergency C-sec 4 weeks early due to preeclampcia. Felt great for 8 weeks and since then have been exteremely fatiugued, unable to sleep well, joint pain, whole body muscle soreness in the morning (eases a bit through the day, but still can feel it), positive ANA test 3 weeks ago, and referred to a rheumatologist who can see me December 1st.

Had my daughter baptized over the weekend and was shocked to see this rash on my face. I've always had "rosy" cheeks, but am now wondering if this red flushing rash is a malar rash or possibly related to lupus? Please feel free to comment. These were taken this morning. I was shocked at how obvious they are. I also went back and looked at other pics taken of me during the last few months and the rash is there and more obvious on days/times when I was feeling really crappy. It is in all the pics, but is really obvious when I was having a bad spell.

Thanks in advance for any input. The pictures are in my album in my profile. (I can't post links to pictures until I have 15 posts.) First picture was from Aug 23rd. Others were from this past weekend.

I will be sure to bring the pictures. I was just amazed at how obvious they were in the baptism pictures. Guess not sleeping for two nights is a bit stressful to the body. *sigh*

And yes... I have a palomino morgan (and a chestnut quarter horse.) I'll add pics to my album under my profile if you want to see them. I have hardly ridden at all for two years because of the pregnancy and now feeling dead tired all this year.
