Apologies in advance. This is a little long:
I’m an 18 year old female. I’ve been sick with an array of symptoms and the doctors have yet to figure them out. Here they are:
-rashes after being in the sun (no burns)
-systemic reactions to foods, but allergy tests are negative
-small infections on my hands (look like zits)
-chronic tightness in chest for over a year
-widespread abdominal pain when I eat (particularly near the top)
-bones feel out of place
-tendons get tight
-skin tender to touch
-strange pain in upper mid-left chest
That’s pretty much it. I have asthma, a systemic nickel allergy, signs of celiac disease, and a vitamin D deficiency that I can’t seem to get under control. Since I’ve heard that these ailments may somehow be related to lupus, I wanted to make sure that my strange symptoms are not related to that. I figure that if I had lupus, it would be obvious, but I’m still a little worried. Should I go into the doctor just to make sure, or am I simply overreacting?
