Mar 24, 2018 · Tumid Lupus with SLE Symptoms? in Autoimmune Diseases

@johnbishop thank you for the support and response. My dermatologist advised me to wear medical sunscreen in my daily routine and to moisturize daily. I have two creams to help it as well and follow up blood work. I have the plaque rash and am recommended to cover my skin when outside. My hands burn and my feet but the elbows are way better with no rash. It disappeared. I was diagnosed with PTSD and anxiety and thought that it was just a stress rash. The pain I feel I also thought it was just symptoms of depression. My great grandmother was diagnosed with lupus but I found this information out after my diagnosis. My dad passed away from lymphoma as well nine years ago. I hope this isn’t overshare but I will be seeing someone I hope that can give me some more answers. My dermatologist was very helpful and caring towards me. The pain that I have had has been going on for years. When the rash on my feet started feeling like I had pebbles in my shoes that is when I decided to get everything looked at. The diagnosis is very interesting and puzzling and I hope that I find answers. @oregongirl thank you

Mar 24, 2018 · Tumid Lupus with SLE Symptoms? in Autoimmune Diseases

I am 25 years old and have been diagnosed with tumid lupus. When a rash that looked big started appearing on my elbows I decided to see a dermatologist. The rash was also on my hands and feet with swelling. My doctor did a skin biopsy on my elbow and my result is tumid lupus. I thought I would share even though this is very new to me. Blood test have been taken to see if the lupus is more. I may sound not as educated with lupus and that is because I feel in the dark about it. I am not fair skinned or to my knowledge sensitive to sun. My eyes are my only sensitivity…in the last year have been extremely sensitive to Bright lights. I have had pain in my hands and back and neck for over a year now. I have poor focus that is diagnosed as ADHD and when I have chest pains I just accepted it was anxiety. I have always considered these to be apart of depression. Thanks for reading.
