Hi everyone, I haven't been diagnosed with Lupus but for the past 5-6 years(really longer) I've had some debilitating symptoms and haven't yet found the relief or answers I desperately seek. I've been to numerous doctors and have been treated singularly for each of these disturbing symptoms i'm having. I have these strange skin sensitivities that I can't recall having to the extreme I have now. rashes, reddish colored really raw sensitive skin areas on my skin. Hair loss, heat sensitivities,dizziness, memory problems, chest pains,mood swings extreme fatigue with exertion, achy body that feels feverish with over exertion fluid imbalances and the list goes on. Does this sound like lupus?

I have most of the symptoms you do but I have been diagnosed with lupus and fibro... Any doctor can run a blood test to determine a diagnosis. Have you asked them about your concerns of having lupus? 5 to 6 yrs is a long time to suffer .....
