Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 day ago):
I had a very severe illness, with fevers (103), myalgia, fatigue. It was triggered or made worse by sun exposure(my hands were sunburnt after kyaking on a vacation). Workup showed very abnormal hematology (myelo and lymphoblasts, platlet count over 700,000, anemia), very elevated acute phase reactants (sed rate 120, CRP 56, liver enzymes elevated). I also developed ANCA-P antibodies. The illness resolved within 1-2 months after stopping the doxycycline. However, I now have stage 3 CRF and wonder if it is from the drug induced lupus.
