My MIL and a friend has Lupus. Well, my husband found out through research that it can be heredity. He also found out that it usually affects women before 14-45.
Our dd is 8 yrs old and has had some of the "symptoms." Meaning she had a rash on her belly and she seems prone to rashes. Plus she has been having pains in her knees and arms. I thought this was just normal stuff. But in light of what we found it, I am concerned.
Does anyone have any experience with Lupus? Do you think she is too young to be tested?
Disclaimer: I am pretty much wanting to know if anyone has any experience with this at a young age. My MIL was 50 when she was diagnosed and our friend is in her mid-30s.
