I am a 26 year old, hispanic female, and i have been having troublesome symptoms for the past 6 or 7 years that have recently brought me to question if lupus might be the cause and wether its enough to consult my doctor about. As early as 19 I can remember suffering from sudden and unexplained fevers,and joint and muscle pain that would sometimes only last a couple of days to weeks. They would come and go and sometimes i'd have long periods of time with no reoccurances for months. At the age of 23 I had my first miscairrage, with a second one that followed only 8 months later, and have always had fertility issues. After the second miscairrage, I was diagnosed with antiphospholipid antibodies and chronic anemia. Over the past 3 years i have begun to experience lots of fatigue even though i dont even work or have any children to take care of. it seems as though my episodes of fever and body pain are becoming more frequent, and i get ill with sore throats and coughs almost every couple of months. I also have pain in my chest that sometimes scares me that im having a heart attack, and cold and sometimes numb fingers and toes. I've done research on my own and Lupus sounds like a real possibility but i worry that maybe its all in my head or that my anxiety could be causing the symptoms. any advice?
