I agree with what everyone is saying on here. You most likely DO NOT HAVE Lupus. The skin flare-ups can absolutely be caused by stress, AND SO CAN THE BODY ACHES AND FATIGUE. You would not believe the crazy things anxiety can do to your body. I know from experience. There were several days in a row I could barely walk because my aches had become so overwhelming. I was stiff and achy, I felt like I had been hit by a truck. I was so tired. This went on for weeks. I, too, was terrified I had Lupus. I was having tremors and shakes, I was terrified I had MS. But...it was anxiety! I've been on medication to handle my anxiety and done several other things to help me calm my anxiety and I am A MILLION times better off now. You will be too! And, like everyone says: even if you do have Lupus on the off-chance, you will still be fine. Please keep us updated!
