Diagnosed with costochondritis, started suddenly. Family history of lupus. Causes for symptoms?
Hello, I have a question about Lupus . I am a 21 year old male who has recently been diagnosed with Costochondritis . I have not sustained any impact to cause the Costo, it started with no warning. My mother has Lupus and I am curious if Lupus is hereditary and if Costochondritis is an early symptom of Lupus. I am also feeling abnormally depressed and I dont know if this is due to the Costo or another possible symptom of Lupus. Any help would be appreciated.
It does not seem to be related to lupus.
Lupus generally has many more symptoms.
It is probably idiopathic.
You should take some NSAIDs and it should subside.
Lupus has some hereditary component to it but it is generally not transmitted.
