    Potential Autoimmune Disease?

    I've been getting a CBC with differential dating back to at least 2012. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia back at age 19 or 20 (I'm in my 30's, currently). Something that has been out-of-whack with my CBC from day one was my amount of neutrophils (chronically low) and lymphocytes (chronically high). My neutrophils are supposed to range between 49-81, and have been as low as 13 as recently as Oct 2018, and as high as 44 Aug 2018, but lately have sat in the low 30's. My Lymphocytes....

    Lupus joint pain

    Just wondering if anyone else has noticed the joint and muscle pain seems stronger in muscles and joints that we're previously injured. I have had severe joint pain in parts of my hands that were burnt approximately 20 years ago. Along with pain in several joints that have been sprained, or injured somehow in the past. The joints on the opposite side of my body will also ache at times but no where near the same severity. I am new to this lupus thing and am still trying to understand my flare....

    Chest pain moving

    Hello, I am 36 and I have SLE, Sjogren's and Antiphospholipid syndrome. This spring after a few hours spent in cold weather, I had fever, a lot of night sweating and lung pain, trouble breathing. CT showed a pleurisy with very little liquid that needed no drainage. They said it must be from Lupus. They gave me paracetamol (acetaminophen) told me to rest and sent me home. Since then the fever went away but the breathing problems and pain are still present. I made a new RX and one doctor said it....

    Vision problems from autoimmune disorder?

    I have been dealing with autoimmune symptoms for quite some time that are widespread. I had tests done last year with ANA of >=1:640 and I was told they would monitor possible lupus symptoms. Anyway, I have started getting weird cloudy blurry vision randomly, especially after eyes are exposed to sunlight without sunglasses. A couple of times, my vision actually went black from the peripheral inward and then vision came back. Only lasted a couple of seconds. Has anyone heard of this before?
