Hi I'm Trindy and think I'm very old to discover that I may have Lupus. I have numerous symptoms going back many years but always thought that Lupus only affected younger people. I'm 57 and not yet through menopause and never thought my diagnosis would be this. I have read today that menopause could be a cause which was new to me. Anyway I have a 7 week wait to see a specialist since they told that I am ANA positive and have some kidney damage. The worst thing is I feel so bad that I finding it hard to get up to go into work which is sad as I love my job. I was attracted to the sight because everyone seems so supportive and I could do with some of that right now because everyone keeps telling meI look so well now I have developed a rash - previously my face was pale.
