    learning about lupus lots of questions
    wichitafallsmom posted:
    I am 35 and I was recently diagnosed with scleroderma. I was telling the doctor about my trouble with anxiety when he asked me if I thought I might have lupus. I didn't know what to say I just responded with I didn't even know I had this until you tested me.
    I will sound really dumb here, but I am waiting to put some money together for more testing, mean while I am trying to figure out what is normal for my age to feel like and what could be a symptom.
    I am always tired. I can not remember any thing. I hurt every day some days are worse than others. I just over all feel bad most of the time. I never gave it much thought and figured that as you get older then you feel different. I thought when people said they were fine they meant the same as me( you really don't want to know so I will say fine to be nice). I guess I am looking for any insight that anyone can give me. Should I be worried. Am I sick and just did not notice? any help with this would greatly be appreciated.
