Am I the only one? people in here seemed to be worried about ALS, MS, cancer, but rarely I see someone worrying about autoimmune stuff. I fear LUPUS so badly.... I have a friend who has it and the lupus has decreased all her blood counts (white, red, platelets) to a dangerously low level and the worse part is that meds don't work on her.
Every time I speak to her and she tells me a new symptom, I seen to develop it.... this is driving me crazy, so far I have developed shortness of breath, rapid shedding of hair, gastritis/gerd, burning in the roof of my mouth (although I see no ulcers).... I am so worried I have lupus too.... I told my fears to my GP and she said I don't have it. How does she know? she didn't test for it.... ah yes I also have low iron....
Should I go back to my GP and demand the ANA test?
Am I the only one fearing lupus?????
