I am a 21 year old who is searching for an answer.... I did not realize what I could be suffering from is Lupus. I am not very knowledgable on the subject but have been doing my reading and shockingly I found I display many lupus systems. I was wondering if I could compare some of my symptoms with those who have had a positive Lupus diagnosis. I have an anxiety disorder and am hoping to calm some of my nerves by talking with you all. I am going to list my symptoms here as well. Feel free to tell me if you believe they are related to lupus as well as chat about your experience with it and getting diagnosed.
Chronic Muscle Pain (particularly in upper and lower legs)- some days worse than others
Chronic Joint Pain (Knees, Ankles, Wrists)- some days worse than others
Extreme Fatigue (being awake for an entire day is difficult and simple activities are exhausting)
Itching on legs chest and back
Anemia and easy bruising
Ankles and Calf Swelling
I do not have the rash across my face or the photosensitivity.
