Hi. Have tested once a weak positive for Lupus. Have had ANA titers of 1:320 and 1:640. Had anemia until last June, when I was given iron infusions. Had one blood clot in 2006 that became a pulmonary embolism. Until now my main complaint was that I tired easily. 5 weeks ago I got the flu, then sinus infection, now thrush in my mouth, down my esophagus, and I'm guessing in my stomach. Also have yeast infection, headache, and very sore neck and right shoulder. I've been running a low-grade fever on and off over this five weeks. Today I was feeling good so got a massage and ran errands at three stores. By the time I got home I was irritable and was running a fever. Have not officially been diagnosed with Lupus. Specialist said I didn't have enough symptoms to make a diagnosis. Does anyone have any experienc or information they can share so I know which direction to take. My regular doctor is getting frustrated with me because I've had to call him several times over the past 5 weeks. Thanks for any help you can give.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
