Hi my name is Stephanie. I am 30 years old. This past month has been terrible for me. Started with swelling of the feet and ankles. When I say swelling I mean real pitting edema. Gained a lot of weight mostly from fluid retention. Then developed pain in ankles, knees, and knuckles with the most severe pain in the knees. I get very warm and sweat a lot. Was hospitalized for a week and discharged with no diagnosis. My inflammatory markets were high such as my ESR, CRP, and have a positive ANA. Went for a second opinion which is leaning towards the diagnosis of Lupus. Anyone out there that can help me with some ideas with what they have experienced. Thanks!
