I am new here. I have not been diagnosed yet.... I really am getting frustrated here. I have had so many symptoms of lupus. I have lost 20 lbs in 1 1/2 months, really thirsty, aching joints, chest pains, mouth ulcers, anxious, weak legs, fatigue, protien in urine, rash that comes and goes in a matter of min or days. Does this sound anything like lupus. All the Dr. wants to do is put me on anxiety pills. I know something is wrong with my body. I just don't know what it is. I have went to a Internal Medicine Dr and he says no way it's lupus. My GP says it sounds like an autoimmune diesease of some sort. Went to a Rhummy and he says I am not a typical lupus patient. Must be Viral. 1 1/2 mths of viral... ?????? I don't under stand. Lupus screening came back neg. ANA was neg. Can I trust this? I cant stand the chest pains and all the aches I have. Constant sore throat and lots of mucas drainage. Anyone have this? I am about at the end of my ropes. No one can tell me whats wrong with me. I even had an african American Dr. tell me it's not common in White women. So she didn't even want to hear about those symptoms. I hope it's not lupus, but what if they are over looking something..... Sorry how long it is.. I just need to vent to someone... I hope you all have a good day... BTW.. .my name is Vicki.. I live in the United States. In Arkansas. I am married with 4 children... it's hard dealing with all the fatigue when you have small ones.. I push myself all the time... Is leg cramps a symptom of lupus? just wondering... I have the worse leg cramp in the right calf.... again... thanks for listening...
