I have had sepsis 6 times through out my life and I am only 21. I had sepsis starting back as young as age 3. When I was 13, I had sepsis so bad I was in the hospital for 6 months. I had blood poisoning which caused sepsis to occur. When I was 20, I had a miscarriage at 6 1/2 months pregnant. They never told me what was causing my miscarriage to happen. Then also when I was 20, 4 months later, I had developed kidney failure, and a UTI and Ecoli in my Urine. I was hospitalized for a month. Then 3 months ago, I passed out 6 times in on month, and had to go to the hospital each time, and they don't know what I passed out. Then 1 1/2 months ago, I had a fevor of 103 and they never figured out what caused that to occur. Then within the last 5 months, I developed shoulder pain, and saw my doctor for that. He sent me to Physical Therapy, and that was doing nothing for me so I stopped going. I saw my doctor again and told him I wanted checked for LUPUS because 10 people in my family have lupus or have died from it. I think thats what I have. Because the more I read about it, everything leads to that. My doctor gave me blood work, Everything came back positive that he checked me for. He told me he is 99.9% sure I have lupus. He is sending me to another doctor to get further checked out and to see how bad my condition is and what they can do for me. I have not seen the doctor yet, and my appointment is in 2 weeks. Do you guys think its lupus? I have muscle and joint pain, flair ups that last 5-10 minutes every 20-30 minutes, I have kidney failure, and I had the miscarriage, and now I have ulcers in my mouth, and I have marks developing on my upper legs that look like tares in the muscle. They are all signs of lupus. My father has the skin lupus kind. I am scared.
