Anyone Else Have Lupus?

Hey guys! A year after being diagnosed with Celiac (3 years ago), I was diagnosed with lupus. Most of the time I can tell which one is bothering me by my symptoms (and I usually automatically know when I've been glutened).


For the last 6 days I have been exhausted, diarrhea, headaches, dizziness, facial rash, vomiting, body aches, and hot flashes. I have not eaten anything questionable. At first, I just thought I inadvertently glutened myself, but it just keeps dragging on...


I wonder if this is indeed the Celiac or if it's Lupus. If it's Lupus I prob need to get a steroid. The prob with that is oral steroids KILL my GI tract. I am miserable, and my butt is killing me!


Just wanted to know from someone who has both, how you know which is which? Steroids or no? ANA? Sed Rate? Should I go to my PCP? GI doc? Rheumy? I have to get better. We are buying a new house, and I need to get busy! Also, should I ask for an IV to get some fluids?


Thank you much!

If you think you may be seriously dehydrated go to the ER since it is the weekend and your doctor is likely not available. You could start with your PCP on Monday. When you call ask to speak to a nurse if possible and tell her what is going on. She can then talk to your doctor and either schedule you there or advise you see a specialist.
