I don't know about you, but I feel that everyone's opinions on this topic are mixed. I have had my mom's rheumatologist tell me that I am not at any risk of having Lupus just because my mom has it. However, I feel that many times I hear about multiple family members having the disease.
While I have not been given a diagnosis of Lupus, like my mom, I have many of the symptoms. I have a positive ANA test and regular blood tests and check ups!
So what do you think? Do you feel there is a link between Lupus and your genes?
