Hey guys! It's been a long time since I posted. I had 2 major work-ups for Lupus, and both Rheumy's said "not likely." Well, I'm having MORE symptoms of Lupus now, inclusing arthritis (I'm 30 years old and underweight, I have no reason to have aching joints)...frequent illnesses, and painless nose/throat ulcers. My ANA was recently checked, and it is down to 1:80. (It used to be 1:320.) Do you think it would be worthwhile to have ANOTHER check for Lupus, or just accept that it's something else and move on? They are taking out my tonsils in a few weeks, hoping that will take care of the constant throat infections!
