    My doctor won’t make a clinical diagnosis for Lupus & I don’t test out. What can I do?
    I have 9 of the 11 indicators of Lupus. I just cannot “pass” the blood tests.
    My gyno thinks I definitely have Lupus, but my rheumy don’t make the diagnosis for lack of laboratory results.

    My gyno told me to file for disability, but I am afraid I will need verified lab tests to get anyone to listen to me.

    What can I do?

      Ma’am your doctor is wasting your time.You suspect you have lupus and they are doing NOTHING.What i suggest is to find a doctor that will actually LISTEN,UNDERSTAND AND HEAR what you say, because your current doctor is not giving you what you actually need.Do what ever you can to get those medical papers passed. Because your health is at SERIOUS RISK.

    Can Child Protective Services keep my boyfriend from seeing my 4 yr old Daughter?
    CPS was called on my boyfriend after she broke her arm (in a public place) and also because she has been having bruising, canker sore, hair-loss and joint pain. I have taken her to the Dr about all these symptoms and they believe she has an auto immune disease ( they thought lupus but had a negative ANA result from lab, lupus would have shown positive) I am now wondering if they charge him with this can they ban him from ever having contact with my daughter again?

      First off, a negative ANA test doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have Lupus. Many people with Lupus have a negative ANA. Lupus is diagnosed through blood work and symptoms. Even if all the blood work comes back negative she could still have Lupus based on her symptoms. Don’t let doctors push you around so easily. Demand and answer.

      Secondly, are you kidding. He should be in jail if he broke your daughter’s arm. You should keep as far away as possible, get a restraining order, change your phone number and never, ever talk to this individual again. He hurt your daughter for god’s sake. And yes, they can prevent him from seeing her if he is abusing her. You need to document it and file paperwork with the courts. In the mean time you should never let him see her. Make him take you to court and then show the judge what he did, he’ll go directly to jail and the court will order him to stay away. Whatever you do, do not let him see her again.

    What are they signs of Lupus and what kind of test do they do to find out if you have it?
    I went to the ER because I was having chest pain they did a bunch of test and said my heart was fine but I had some kind of inflammatory thing going on and then the doctor asked me if I had Lupus in my family and I have no idea what it is or anything and no we don’t. Could I have it? I’m making a follow up appointment with my doctor. Should I ask him to test me for Lupus? What do you think?

      There is no test for lupus. A diagnosis of lupus is made based on a variety of lab tests, medical history, symptoms and after other diseases have been ruled out. It often takes years to get a diagnosis.

      Inflammation of the lungs, pleurisy, is one of the symptoms of lupus. The ER doc was wise to mention it. I had repeated bouts of pleurisy and joint pain throughout my life. The docs dismissed it. In 2003, I ended up in hospital for 14 days where I was diagnosed. I was 51 at the time and had been having these problems since the age of 13!!!

    What kind of Neurological symptoms do you have with Lupus?
    I’m being tested for lupus after being sick for 2 yrs and I have tons of neurological symptoms just wondering if these are common symptoms for lupus. here are my symptoms.
    Burning stinging headaches, dizzy, lightheaded,vertigo, seizure type incidents, sharp shooting pains in head, also get weard sensations on my body like warm water pouring on me. Any info will be appreciated. If you have any neurological symptoms from Lupus pleas list them for me. Thanks!

    1. Linda R

      Some lupus patients have neurological symptoms, some do not. Lupus symptoms vary widely from patient to patient.

      Headaches could be caused by lupus or by Raynaud’s phenomenon or other things. Many lupus patients have Raynaud’s, a condition in which stress or cool temperatures cause the nerves to tell the blood vessels to clamp down and restrict blood flow, usually to hands and feet, but can also cause headaches.

      Lightheadedness can be caused by a number of things as well. Lupus patient are often anemic, When you are anemica, there is not enough available oxygen in your blood, which could account for light headedness or dizziness.

      Vertigo usually has to do with the inner ear. Lupus can cause inflammation anywhere, including the inner ear.

      I am not sure what you mean my “seizure type” incidents. Do you lose consciousness? Do you convulse? Some lupus patients do have seizures. But seizures can be caused by many other things.

      Lupus patients with antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (sticky blood) which causes clots may have TIAs or ministrokes. This could account for your head pain and seizure type incidents. Ask to have your blood tested for this.

      As for the weird sensations, please find a clearer way to describe that as well. If you tell the doctor that you have “seizure type incidents” and “weird sensations on your body” you are not helping the doctor get to the root cause of your problem. If these weird sensations are painful, you could have neuropathy which sometimes comes with lupus, or diabtetes, or multiple sclerosis, or other things.

      As a patient your job is to give the doctor the best and clearest information possible. It is the doctor’s job to connect the dots. A diagnosis of lupus is made based on family history, your medical history, a wide variety of lab tests and after everything else is ruled out. There is no definitive lab test for lupus.

      To do your job, keep a symptom journal including
      1. a clear description of the symptom
      2. when it started
      3. how often it happens
      4. how long it lasts
      5. what makes it feel better
      6. what makes it feel worse
      7. to what degree does it interfere with your activities of daily living

      Then create a concise summary and bring a copy for your doc and a copy for you.
