    Rosacea? Lupus? Something Else? 2 summers ago I suddenly delveloped a rash or hives on my face and neck. My face swelled up to the point I couldn’t open my eyes. Dr said it was an allergic reaction (but no clue what to) or possibly lupus. But I never got it checked out

    Ever since then my right cheek has always had a redness that never goes away. It gets worse when I’m hot or under stress. Sometimes (not all the time) when I drink alcohol I get extremely hot and I break out in a rash on my chest and neck and my face turns blood red. But this doesn’t always happen. …even if I’m drinking from the same bottle of wine.

    What is this? Can anyone help me?

    Psychiatric Train Wreck Needing Advice? My husband is currently seeing a Psychiatrist who is the only one for 100 miles of our house. It has become painfully clear that she does not listen. My husband is/was a civil engineer about 5 years ago he began having horrible panic attacks and was diagnosed with GAD, panic disorder, and OCD. At home he is a wreck but in public he passes out often, vomits, and shakes. The psychiatrist just throws more pills at him and because of previous meds he has been on he is terrified of them. The train wreck came in today when it became clear she had no idea what his issues were. She called him overly negative. She said that he was getting better and that he needed to spend more time with family and to look at the positives like him being in good physical health and that he needed to stop worrying about his health so much. Seems innocent right? Here is the issue. The reason he began seeing his psychiatrist was because of the panic and distress caused by his health failing him. He has been diagnosed with Lupus, Sjordens Syndrome, RA, Asthma, and MVP all in the last 5 years. We have kept her up to date. Most days getting out of bed and walking around is a huge task and doing physical therapy. She seemed oblivious and the look on his face was kind of shock from being called overly negative about his good health. The hammer blow was the first part and the other reason he was seeing her. He also had to be in a clinic for a few days over it not long ago on HER request. She mentioned spending time with his family. He has none and by none I mean none. His grandparents which he knew well died before he was 21. Some of his other relatives before that and just most recently his aunt on his fathers side (which is when she put him in an incare program for a few days). That was it. So when he saw her yesterday and she mentioned that and how much better he looked (btw he did not look better he looked tired and like he just did not care) it kind of hit him hard. She did not know anything about him after 5 years of hurling pills at him and seeing a therapist. I wonder if she ever read the therapists notes? He told me when we left he felt worse when he came out than when he went in and alot more hopeless. She gets mad at him for not being able to take certain meds because of the ones he is on already mess with them or he has bad reactions but he tries. I have no idea how to help him we do not have another psych for 100 miles and it is in another state! She sees him for like 15 minutes throws some meds at him that usually the pharmacist has to call her about saying it cannot be taken with his meds she gets upset and it seems like it is some big hassle us throwing our insurance money at her even though he is the sick one somehow he is an inconvenience. I am so sorry this is so long but when he got home he went to bed this was 11 am and he is still laying here sleeping. I do not know how to help him. Ty in advance.
    Oh I forgot to mention. He did after she mentioned those things about his health and family correct her and she just acted like he never said a word.

      There is no cure for lupus. Lupus can range from mild to life threatening. Lupus is a disease where the immune system is confused and attacks healthy parts of the self instead of germs. Lupus is managed by life style and medications that weaken the immune system. Read more here

    Frequent Headaches Without Hight Blood Pressure.? I have been having headaches quite frequently lately. I have been to the doctor but they won’t run any tests to even remotely to even try to figure out what could be the cause. My blood pressure is fine, but I have had bad body aches accompanied with headaches. just about every other day. My doctor mentioned a test for lupus but I don’t have the butterfly rash.

    Is there a reason for these headaches even though I don’t have high blood pressure or any brain injuries, or tumors. headaches are so bad.. like they are migraines . Is there a reason someone could get frequent migraines? if so, what factors could play into it and how can i get my doctor to THOROUGHLY check me for any other conditions that could be the problem. Your help would be awesome. Thanks guys. 🙂

    Did Michael Jacksob HAVE To Die? I mean, They say Michael Jackson was healthy. Not true. Well, maybe. Anyway, i read his autospy. He was bald, only had pills in his stomach and had scars on him and stuff. He was pretty healthy, though.Still he couldve just stayed alive if Dr.Conrad wouldnt have been on the phone downstairs of his mansion.

    • Curator says:

      According to his autopsy report he was healthy for a 50 yr old man. All his organs were healthy and the only drugs he had in his system were from Murray and the paramedics. He did have lupus and vitiligo but those diseases could be maintained. So no he didn’t have to die so soon.

    Can Lupus Be A False Negative? Hi, Im 16 And have been suffering greatly for a while with nausea dizziness and a lot of pain my knees blew up a little bit and my whole body has been making snapping noises when i move I have GERD and severe esophagitis that was seen in an upper endoscopy along with a small hiatal hernia in an upper gi small bowel series i have a positive ANA test being 1:160 and Rheumatoid Factor rheumatologist referd me to see someone else my family has a strong history of lupus on both sides grandfather died of it at age 31 when their was no treatment lupus test came out negative but other 2 tests remain positive can their be a false negative on the lupus test? also i had an issue with my liver enzymes ended up in the ER my liver function test was at 472 out of a 7-37 range now back to normal i have been having a lot of similar symptoms to lupus anybody with similar experiences that can help thanks

    • Curator says:

      There is no definitive test for lupus. A diagnosis of lupus is based on symptoms, history, a variety of tests and process of elimination.

      Your ANA is not very high. What matters more than a positive ANA is the immunofluorescent pattern. Speckled is more likely to point to lupus.

      Other tests should include anti dsDNA, sed rate, compliment, CMP, CBC, CRP, etc.

      Positive rheumatoid factor sometimes accompanies lupus, however it could mean you have rheumatoid arthritis, another autoimmune disease.

      You need to see a pediatric rheumatologist. Find one here
