I haven't updated my profile yet. Think my Reynaud's may be associated with lupus. Is this something you have experience with?

      I've been told I have Fibromyalgia for years. My doctor done some blood work a month or so ago and my ANA was abnormal. She's sending me to a rheumatologist to check for other possibilities. I have so many symptoms that indicate Lupus. They couldn't get me in until October! 🙄 What are your Lupus related symptoms?

      My symptoms are constant pain, like I got hit by a truck tenderness/inflamation in my knees fingers, shoulders, hair loss, tired/exhausted even after resting most of the day, constant headaches, low grade fevers, numbness in legs and hands and fingertips (especially when cold)

        @TreSc sounds just like lupus! Are you seeing a rheumatologist? I have a compounding cream that has vasodilator (blood pressure med but in cream) that I can use to help open the tiny blood vessels in my toes. I also took viagra (off label use prescribed by my primary dr) to help with blood circulation. 1 winter I developed diabetic type ulcers on my toes from lack of blood flow- that’s when I got the cream & viagra! Lol

          @NicoleAS yes ma'am. I actually have 3 doctors. A rheumatologist, neurologist, and then my primary doctor.😥

      Yes, definitely related!

      Yes. Experienced this before I was diagnosed with Lupus. Thought it was because I was anemic. My fingers are affected the most. And it can sometimes be hard to warm them up to get feeling back in them. People laugh at me sometimes because I wear gloves sometimes during the warmer months.

        @TreSc Thanks for your response! What are your Lupus symptoms and how did the diagnosis process go? Frozen fingers crossed I'm not dealing with it but it looks like a better explanation of my weird variety of symptoms than anything else.
