About Me: Male, 39, Houston , TX, member since Aug 2006
I am a 35 year old mom and professional. My mom was diagnosed with lupus and my ANA factor came back homogenous and slightly elevated. I'm 1:80 right now. Dr. wants to do more tests to see if any come back lupus specific. I have thought for years that I have lupus. It m
[More]ight be that I have a elevated ANA simply because my mom has lupus but I've had so many unspecific symptoms I can't even count them. Tremors, shakes, joint pain, muscle pain, twitching, forgetfulness, dizziness, tighness in chest. I had a tremendous amount of fatigue right after I had my son and the symptoms were very severe. My family Dr. thought I had MS at one point. Anyway, enough about my sob story!! I have a beautiful son and we are so busy all the time! He plays soccer and thank God I don't really experience fatigue anymore. Not beyond the normal amount a busy mom that work 50 - 60 hours a week. I guess I don't have much of a life beyond my child and boyfriend. I actually very happy. Just concerned that I may become Lupus positive.
