    Drug-induced lupus

    Has anyone ever been diagnosed with DIL (drug-induced lupus)? A few years ago, I began having lupus like symptoms that caused a lot of dysfunction in my life for over a year, and I had a positive ANA test. I was referred to a rhumetoid specialist but he only thought it was something other than lupus and yet never gave me any other diagnosis after many many many tests, referrals, etc. I have had a healthy year now since then but feel at times as if I could be experiencing those symptoms again. I was....

    Lupus - a trigger - before and after diagnosis?

    For as long as I can remember, I have been plagued with sinus infections. Starting at age 17 I began having Migraines with Auras which continue. I had a complete hysterectomy at 30 and developed Bells Palsy at 38. I was diagnosed with Lupus at the age of 43. I began taking low levels of Plaquenil and remarkably it reduced the symptoms & I returned to work after a 2-year layoff. I modified my diet, stress levels and workload and except for flu and sinus infections (which usually lasted 10x longer....

    My mother and Lupus?

    Hello everyone. At my apartment, I like to keep the temperatures cool and I enjoy cozying up with my PJS and a blanket with friends and family. However, whenever my mother comes over, even though I keep my AC on 72, my mother's fingertips turn almost completely blue. I thought it was oxygen deprivation but it seems to be only when she's cold. My friend told me that it could be Lupus. Is that something that typically happens? It's very strange and I'm concerned. Please help. I don't....

    Lupus

    My mother had lupus and so did I. It did end my working life early because it forced me out on permanent disability, gave me a hard time for 10 years or so; then went into remission. However, along the way, I also picked up epilepsy and 2 diseases: Sjogrens and Raynauds. For the rest of my life I will be on seizure meds. Within the last year, S & R (I call them my evil twins) have come back and likely will haunt me for the rest of my life. Sjogrens makes every orifice dry, as in dry mouth, dry....

    Lupus diagnosis

    Hi I live in Kentucky and I need information about a doctor who can effectively diagnose lupus or tell me what is going on with me. In a nutshell, I have tried two primary physicians who were not able to give me a correct explanation about symptoms I am experiencing. the only answer was they don't know. So far I have experienced UTI like symptoms but all the test came up negative. I had swallowed lymph nodes in my groin that comes and goes. Since 8 months i am experiencing allergies to some food....

    Been having symptoms. What kind of doctor do I see?

    I've been having some strange symptoms for a couple of months now and when I looked them up all signs seem to point to lupus. It has me anxious to find out if this is actually what I have or if something else is going on. My main symptoms are pretty intense fatigue especially when I change my routine in any way as well as joint pain mainly in my arms and fingers but sometimes also in my knees. I also occasionally get headaches and have noticed hair loss, although not to the extent that I have....

    HELP

    Hello WebMD Community. I'm posting this for my mom because she has had a skin condition for the last 2 years and no matter how many doctors she goes to we cant find out what it is. She has been misdiagnosed with psoriasis and even exema but neither one of those treatments have worked. We have wasted hundred on different types of creams and even visiting different doctors but nothing yet. I'm hoping someone has been thru this before and has found out what it is. To give a little background....
