I am so frustrated. I have been having a rash appear in the early morning hours waking me up for the last 2 years. Starting on the face and abdomen and then working its way until last Sept I was covered in it so I finally went to the doctor because of it being unbearable. She done blood work and the ANA panel come back Positive with a speckled pattern titre was 1:640. Joints aching and swollen and low grade fever , protein in urine and blood in the urine. The doctor sent me to a Rheumotoid doctor. He told me that we were looking at lupus and thought it was the good kind. He done blood work which came back neg. and sent me to a dermatologist. They done a Skin biopsy and it came back neg but he also done a CMV bloodwork and it was positive for Epstein-Barr Virus. So now I am confused. He said that all the symptoms are from the Epstein-Barr Virus and that I don't have lupus. Now where do I turn? 2 doctors say "yes" and dermatologist says"No"
