Doctors Gaslit Me for 5 Years, Telling Me Lupus Symptoms Were All in My Head

  Doctors Gaslit Me for 5 Years, Telling Me Lupus Symptoms Were All in My Head I had all the classic symptoms of lupus, but doctors told me it was all in my head On a freezing day in the winter of 2013, I left my doctor's office in tears for the third time in as many months. In a haze that had become all too familiar over the past weeks and months, I called my mom as I walked back to my apartment — a ridiculously overpriced fourth-floor walk-up on the Upper East Side. She picked up on the first ring."What did the doctor say?""Nothing! The same thing as usual!" I screamed into my phone as the floodgates opened and I began ugly crying.

There is no cure for lupus, “an autoimmune disease – in which your immune system attacks healthy cells by mistake – that can potentially damage many parts of the body,” according to the Lupus Research Alliance.

The Lupus Foundation of America estimates roughly 1.5 million Americans have the condition, which can cause skin rashes, lesions, joint pain and fatigue, among other symptoms.

The disease is not contagious – rather, it’s a result of a person’s hormones, genetics and environment, the foundation said.

After receiving backlash over the incident, the salon’s attorney, Scott Wellman, told FOX11 employees “were just trying to follow the rules.” He added that the manicurist likely didn't know Lupus is not contagious.

Neither Wellman nor Brown were immediately available when Fox News requested additional comment Thursday morning.
