Hi, new here. I have been referred to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester in an attempt to get a diagnosis. Should hopefully have an appt. soon. I thought I would make this post in hopes that someone else might be suffering from something similar, or someone may have an idea. I have suffered from food allergies for several years and have to follow a strict diet. I also have been diagnosed with Drug Induced Lupus six years ago. I had been on Nexium for a couple years and began to experience severe joint and muscle pain with hair loss on my lower legs from the inflammation. My Anti-histone AB test was ultimately a 6.2 and anything over a 0 to 0.9 is positive. I discontinued the medicine and slowly my symptoms improved but found that certain meds like other acid reducers, anti-histamines, and antibiotics would flare my symptoms up. I would also commonly wake up in the morning with leg pain, but it would always go away as I got up and moved around. In April of this year I had to have my GB removed as it has stopped working (no stones). In May I was recovering and starting to feel well when I developed severe insomnia and then severe joint/muscle pain and cognitive impairment along with muscle weakness. I also lost more hair on my lower legs. It was suspected that I was having an autoimmune/allergic reaction to the titanium clips used during the surgery and on July 3 I went into surgery and the metal clips were removed and one polymer clip had to be used as my artery was leaking. The worst of the symptoms have went away, but I am still suffering from muscle pain in my feet/lower legs/thighs, pelvic floor/ arms/shoulders/ and hands. The upper body pain seems to come when my symptoms are the worst, always have the lower body pain. In June I did test positive for the Anti-histone AB at a 3.3. In August it was a 4.4 and it was a 3.7 a month ago. I also had a weak positive ANA in August with homogeneous pattern. Even though I am testing positive for Drug Induced Lupus my Dr. doesn’t think this is Drug Induced Lupus as the symptoms should go away in 3 to 6 months, though I have read it can take a year or more. Since July the only meds I take are a Benadryl every 10 days when I get my allergy shots and Tylenol when needed for other pain. Other than that I am taking a Multi-vitamin, fish oil, probiotic, and Quercetin. If I discontinue the Quercetin my symptoms seem to worsen, it is a natural anti-inflammatory. I’m starting to wonder if my surgery triggered an autoimmune disease or maybe I have a rare case of Drug Induced Lupus. I’m not for sure what has triggered the strong positive Anti-Histone AB tests, i suspect it was the antibiotics used during the surgeries and I was also on Ciproflaxin a couple years ago for a prostate infection after vasectomy and I have read it can cause drug induced lupus. Anyone ever hear or experience something similar?
