I know exactly how you feel. My blood work has never come back positive, but I've been diagnosed with Lupus since 2004. I get the hives after just a little bit of sun, but of course, being red-headed and fair skinned, the sun and I have never really been friends anyway. Hang in there and let them treat you. I've learned a little more about this disease every day. I don't think we'll ever stop learning, but the information helps understand some things that we are going through.View Thread

WebMD's Day2Night will help you develop personal coping strategies for living with lupus – at home, at work, or with family and friends.
