Hi! I am looking for info and support here on this forum from people that has gone thru or going thru some of the things that I have been thru in the last 3 years,(is it lupus or not).Within the last 3 yrs,I have had joint/muscle pain in the knees,feet,wrist,and hands,and a low grade temp.Also, I have nose ulcers that will not go away,had these for the last 2 yrs.About 8 months ago I had red rash appear on the upper part of arms,which stop at the elbows.This rash does not itch,and at times it is warm to the touch and becomes bright red,it is flat not a raised rash.The rash also is located under each eye and across my nose,but here the rash is not as bright as the rash on my upper arms.Been seeing a Rhuemy all blood test are negative,ANA.Finally,on one visit with the Rheumy,my feet were swollen and I had fever,and the upper arms were warm to the touch and lower arms were cold.Rheumy,was then concerned.I was sent to have a biopsy of the rash.Now here is were I just get so confused.I went to a dermatologist for biopsy,the biopsy came back this is what it read final `diagnosis :subtle interface dermatitis with increased interstital mucin compatible with lupus erythematosus.I then return to the rheumy,Rheumy say's he does not agree with the biopsy findings! But Dermy dr say's its lupus! So now what? I am so ready to give up! I don't know what else to do.Also,i forgot to mention I have been on plaquenil 200 mg twice a day for 2 months before I was sent for the biopsy.On my last visit i was given a low dose of predisone to take.Sorry the post is so long .Just hoping that someone here has been thru this and is willing to give info.
