Hi everyone, I am sorry I keep coming back with questions. I don't understand all this stuff. I went to see my Rhemy on Tuesday she said My ANA was high, she also said my Lupus test and RA test were normal?? I asked her and she said they didn't put any numbers by the ANA. She said it shows signs of Autoimmune but didn't have an answer as to which one. The only thing I know is I feel like crap almost all the time. She put me on more MedsPrednisone,Folbic and Methotrexate. Any ideas?? She said my symptoms where helpful to her( but not for me!!) I try to read daily on here to understand more, but it gets pretty confusing when they say their ANA is 62 or how it works and so on. Still a guessing game I guess. Well I guess I will just keep waiting. Thanks for any suggestions RoxannView Thread
Hi Lupylisa, I woke up feeling cold, went on the computer for awhile and then it came on. I have had the cold feeling and white/blue color before, but not where both my hands felt numb. It usually just happens to my fingers. I do get that feeling when I am in the freezer as wellor cold water. Well thanks for your input. RoxannView Thread
HI, I have had something happen that has never happened before. My hands got really cold and felt like they were asleep. Dr said I have raynaud's disease. Usually it is in one spot this time it was my whole hand. (Both hands) Felt pretty strange. Does this go hand and hand with Lupus? I guess that is my question? Still waitning for results. Tuesday is the day I go to see Her. I have been keeping track more closely of my symptoms. Low grade fevers 100.8 , knee pain and swelling, etc. She put me on Medrol again. Well any way thanks for reading. And thanks for the insite. RoxannView Thread
Hi , I was just wondering if anyone else gets a batch of dry skin, that hurts to the touch? Its on my elbow. Never had this before. Still waiting to hear about my blood work. I hope there are some kind of results. Thanks, RoxannView Thread
Hi Lori, I feel your pain. Thank God your boyfriend was there for you!! I Went to see my Rhumy on Tuesday she sent me in for more blood work. I seen one test was for Lupus. I hope I get some answers. I have night time fevers, not as bad as you I thought maybe it was Hot flashes. I dont get a period any more. So I can't go by that. Its been 10 plus years since I had one.(Hysterectomy) I also had a reaction to the sun, Dr said it may have been from my Meds? I havent try it since. Maybe I should,I got cuts on my face and my head, also my arms. Now I just feel itchy. She said it sounds like a flare so she put me on Medrol pack. In the past all my test results come back normal. She said she hasnt tried this one yet, so well see. Good luck to you. I hope you get some answers soon. Best wishes , RoxannView Thread

Hi, How is everyone doing? Me hanging in there. I have been posting on and off for alittle while now. There are alot of helpful women here!! Even if its just to vent. It's nice to know if you have questions they are here to help! I have some new symptoms, I feel very itchy on my face and scalp. I lose the use of my hands sometimes, only for a moment. the things I do every day and then I cant?? Still have the low grade fevers. Just about every day in the evening. The get up too about 99.6 or so. I know they say your temp is higher in the evening but every day? I have a cough. I thought its because I smoke, but its not a smokers cough. Hurts to breath in hard sometimes. I know I should quit! To much stress in my life. No excuse! I dont know if these are something to do with Lupus or what. Jessi1966 had said it could be UCTD. Are these symptoms apart of that. Well I guess you have read enough. Thank You for you input, RoxannView Thread
