I have posed this wuestion in another forum but I am most worried that my symptoms could be Lupus so was looking for some insight if people don't mind.
I guess I will start this off by saying about a month ago I got really sick I had a horrible earache which in turn swelled up the glands in my throat on the same side of my face, and gave me a horrible fever. I went to my school health clinic where I was given a prescription for Ratio-Cefuroxime, which seemed to clear up the problems.
Recently I began to get sick again and the glands on one side of my neck started to swell up. I thought that whatever I had before had come back. However more symptoms that hadn't appeared the first time are appearing. The swollen glands eventually went away but I got small pink bumps on my arms chest and back similar to pimples but they don't secrete anything. They have been on my body for about 4 days now. Then I got canker sores under my tongue and more under my top lip. Last night welts started to appear on my leg they hurt when you apply pressure to them. On top of this my ankles and feet have been oddly sore lately. Oh and I have a headache.
I also have dry skin on my cheeks which I assumed was from the cold weather lately but its red/pinkish and bumpy so worried that it may be a butterfly rash. Could this be Lupus or am I overreacting?

Hey.. if there are rabbits involved... consider the possibility of typhus or ?tularemia. I see so many people here that are wondering about long term chronic health problems. It would be so much better to have something easily fixable. Be sure and mention the rabbit at the md.. or see an ID infectious disease) doc. I hate to see people condemned by a diagnosis. Good luck in finding answers soon as you search. Blessings.
