I came up with a positive ANA about 6 weeks ago.I forced the doctor to run the test. His words "you don't have Lupus" I told him "then run the test" I keep having bouts of exhaustion and horrible joint pain especially in my hands and elbows. Sometimes it's too much to lift my arms. I can't go into the sun without breaking into hives. Sunlight makes my eyes hurt. I feel like a vampire or something.Who has problems stepping into the sun? I hate this. I really wanted it to come back negative. I find out Tuesday if i actually have SLE. I'm terrified. Ive been watching videos on youtube of people with SLE. Can that really be what I'm in for? If you knew me you'd describe me as strong willed- strong type A personality. This can't happen to me.
