    I am being tested for Lupus. I'm wondering if any of you with it have problems with heavy feeling eyes, chills, feeling like you have a high fever, but have NO fever? Thanks for any info.

    Hi, so many questions, what tests are being done to confirm that you have lupus? Yes, ALL of the symptoms you mentioned can occur with lupus. As in any autoimmune disorder, the symptoms span the gsmmit and can consist of just about anything! It's important to know your ever changing body and watch for secondary infections and other conditions that may be getting over looked and considered a side effect of lupus. I'm guessing that you have other conditions? Thyroid? I'm more than happy to discuss and share my experiences as I've been dealing with lupus and other auto immune disorders actively for almost 15 years. Naturegirl65
