I got the result back from my ANCA, ANA, FBC and ESR blood tests and they were all normal which hopefully rules out a lupus diagnosis that I had feared due to my facial rash and joint pain. I'm still at a loss to explain what could be causing all my symptoms and despite passing neurological exams I am quite concerned it could be MS. The only other explanation could possibly be fibromyalgia?
I'm on ibuprofen as my joint and muscle pains are really bad, they come on sharply with stabbing pains and fleet around my body, I have no idea what is causing the malar type rash on my face but it seems to come when I'm feeling my worst. My eye is twitching, I feel very dizzy and unsteady on my feet and generally feel unwell. I feel dreadfully fatigued and tired all day but still manage to mainly go about my day to day business with a very foggy head.
The tests I've had so far are the blood tests, neurological exams; eye test, urine test and a chest x ray which were all okay. I'm at a loss as to what's going on. I'm currently on 100mg Trazodone which may be causing a few symptoms. Can stress cause stabbing joint and muscle pains, aches and fatigue? The flaring rash is also bizzare and unexplainable. I'm trying my best not to worry and feel better for knowing it's not lupus (I hope not anyway)
