No more of Dr Google tonight. If I go by Dr Google then I have lupus and not eczema.. But that is only because I do have the exact same symptoms listed under lupus and it does say lupus can imitate other things.

Thing is two days ago I had random swelling and stiff and painful joints in my hands and that has NEVER happened before. Plus the extreme fatigue I have been having for the past month or so, I have posted about this and it has been getting worse, now this very suspicious rash. Thing is it looks EXACTLY like this, though some of it is more spaced apart on my body but THAT RIGHT THERE looks EXACTLY like the ones on my hips.I still can't find pictures of

Ugg. No more dr google.

Especially because, in my travels of Dr Google this is all I can think of.

Yeah. The doctor I went to told me to go see a dermatologist but, I am like, if it is lupus will they be able to tell me that?! I mean, I am still going to go but just considering all of my options.

Well, Doctor Google is how I found out I had pancreatic cancer and liver failure. (It was just gastroenteritis). Seriously, though. Google is never your friend when it comes to stuff like this. Do yourself a favor and step away from the internet for awhile.

Maybe you can ask the Dr. take some tests at least, to rule it out?
Here are some tests they use for lupus.

Oh yes, Dr. Google and his trusty sidekick WebMd diagnosed me with cancer after months of unexplainable scary symptoms. Extreme weight loss, tightening/choking feeling in throat,fatigue....in truth all from severe anxiety/stress-__- F U Google and your worst case scenerio assumptions.

Thing is it may be better to actually get tested because my kidneys are already shit and going to eventually fail.. Adding onto that would not be good.
