Hey mommies!! Im looking for a bit of advice, help, or ever just for someone to tell me what the hell is going on! I am a 22 year old mom of a beautiful 5 month old girl I had via c-section and ever since my "lupus" symptoms have been much worse. Heres how it all started and up untill the spot im at: I was diagnosed with Raynaud's Phenomenon was I was 16 I had the typical Raynauds symptoms, My joints ached, I turned purple, and my hands would swell. This affected me more so In the winter, over time in the summer I started getting red rashes all over my hands and feet, they itch, hurt and most of all look horrible. I am now to the point that I always have an ache, a pain, a rash, swelling, or am tired. Everyday its a different thing but when I have a rash flare up I get slammed with all my symptons at once. I have been diagnosed with Lupus and am in the process of doing more testing and meeting with a specialist (cant remember the name). Feel free to say whatever you would like or just talk to me about it!!
Thanks so much Tenille!
