« on: November 28, 2010, 11:50:33 AM »
This is a 16 question screening for lupus. It gives you a percentage of probability for having lupus.

I am not dx with it, but going to a rheumy in January to be tested for other ai diseases.

I tested 10/16 and 63%. I had to answer no on the lab questions cuz I don't know them yet.
What's your score...

13/16 or 81%  I haven't been diagnosed with Lupus yet but just primary and severe Sjs.  I wonder if the result is indicative of Lupus symtoms in my case or of severe SJs.  They have alot of similarities from my experience.

I scored 11/16 and that's 69%.  So many of the questions were also associated with SJS--I really don't think I have lupus, but I guess it doesn't matter as I'm getting all kinds of treatment.

75% for me---I also have many symptoms of lupus and my immunologist says that I sure remind him of a lupus patient. My DNA test is still negative. He just keeps doing it every 1-2 years to see what is up. It won't change any of my treatment unless I would have kidney problems.Irish ;D

13/16 for me.  81% i think.  Ive been diagnosed with a severe case of primary sjogrens at the moment but my rheumie says these diseases are very similar in symptoms, particularly sjs and lupus.

14 out of 16  88%,  I had just been diagnosed with Lupus last Tuesday and my doctor did not really discuss it with me, except for the fact that I am suffering from severe anemia.

I think Lupus might be something I have, but the biggest issue is that although my symptoms started with a rash years ago, it was not diagnosed as Lupus then.  I don't have the rash now-- but I do have the hair loss.  I do have several overlap symptoms-- but then again, I do for rheumatoid arthritis and scleroderma.  So many of these autoimmune diseases mimic each other.  It's hard to get a real firm diagnosis, unless something changes and a symptom becomes more apparent.
