do any moms out there have Lupus?

I've watched my mother suffer with it for as long as I can remember. Now, I've been having a lot of wierd symptoms, and the doctor said I may have it, he just can't diagnose me with it yet. (because it's so hard to diagnose) I'm just a little nervous, and looking for some kind of support I guess. My DH tries to be sympathetic, but he just doesn't get it. I was curious what symptoms led to your diagnoses? And if anyone with it would be interested in being my "friend" on here, just to have someone to talk to that understands.

  • I have sjogrens, which is closely related to lupus. My main symptom was extreme fatigue, that's what first made me go to the dr. I also had swelling in my salivary glands and dryness in my mouth.
