3/31 I had bloodwork done to see if I have Lupus. It was specifically for that, about 5 tests or so. The labwork came back negative on 4/2. I think I have a flair coming on, with fever (~101), facial rash, joint pain (everywhere) worst in knees, elbows and wrists. Intolerance to cold, Reynauds when cold. Mouth sores, flaky skin sores.
Should I have the bloodwork redone while in a flair or would all the ANAs and other bad thing have been there anyhow? I've had this for about 20 years and it's getting worse, hence the request for the bloodtest.
