Hi all , was diagnosed with fibro 4 years ago, and now after two years of rashes after exposure to the sun they seem to think i have lupus. I gave birth to my 3rd child 7 months ago and was wondering whether being pregnant with lupus will cause her any to have any problems. Also my 15 year old is complaining of muscle pain! Are my children predisposed to any of the conditions that i have. I am adopted so do not know much about my family history , however the little i do know is as follows: my natural grandfather was severely disabled with rheumatoid arthritis and my natural grandmother had kidney problems and was on dyalisis for years ,when she finally passed away due to kidney failure. I am concerned that it may be hereditary, can anyone shed some light on this for me please?
