Lupus?

Does any one here have lupus? I have been to my doctor and had blood work done to just be told i have to go see a specialist. My first round of blood work my anti DNA came back high at 14 this time around it came back extremly high at 84. I am worried cuz I do have many symptoms of lupus and am fearing the worst. My mother does have fibromyilga and rhumetoid arthritis so I am hoping for that type of diagnoses rather then Lupus. So does any one here have it? If so how do you deal with it?

  • I would def start researching lupus and how to deal with it and live with it. You can do it. I babysat for a woman with lupus and she was okay. She made it but had to take time to rest and such. Check out this site. Mayo Clinic is a very reliable source of information. I used it in a lot of my work for school.

  • I'm sorry sweetie I don't have it, but I was tested for it during a million other tests. I also was diagnosed with fibro. I hope everything comes back negative. What type of specialist do you have to go to?
