i am desperate trying to figure out what is really wrong with me. I have a lot of symptoms that seem to point to lupus or MS. I know those 2 can overlap.
I started with skin changes my face looks like i have rosacea and acne, which i have never had before. some days more than others. Along with that came super dry scaly eyelids and face, and dry scaly ears and scalp. My hair is also turning super dry.
Then i got this weak feeling in my lower back and left leg. I get bad back pain especially lower back. Also my muscles are super tense and sometimes mild muscle pain. All of this along with crazy horrible fatigue, some muscle twitching and recently im super sensitive to light and my eyes feel inflamed and very wet especially when i wake up.
I also started having bad brain fog and feeling depressed due to all of this going on. Last night i tried to stretch a bit and shortly after i had elbow and knee pain.
I have been to doc and ANA was weakly positive but he tested another strand and said that was negative. i have an appt. with a rheumatologist in about a week and also a neurologist . Just wanted to hear from anyone who is experiencing lupus and find out what your input is.
thanks and sorry for the long post.
