My ana and rheumatiod factor were both negative. I still have mouth ulcers and urticaria. Does this sound like lupus?

Unlikely

Rheumatoid_arthritis
The picture you describe would be unusual for lupus and a negative ANA make the diagnosis highly unlikely.

Mouth ulcers are not uncommon in lupus. With your clinical presentation, lupus is a major possibility. See a rheumatologist if you have not done so already.

Dr. Michio Abe answered:

my esr and crp levels are high. I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and also have raynauds, ulcers in mouth, sleep disturbances. Could it be lupus?

Fibromyalgia/lupus

Hand_ulcer
Sounds like you have autoimmune disease like lupus or mixed connective tissue disease. Your symptoms can certainly be due to it. Fibromyalgia can, however, coexist with lupus, and the presence of lupus does not necessarily exclude coexistence of fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a clinical diagnosis based on history and exam, and represents a chronic pain syndrome distinct from lupus.

How to remove mouth ulcers?

Why ulcers there

Oral_ulceration
Depends on where it exactly is and what it looks like. Mouth Ulcers can be a matter of simple using an Rx Peridex soak, or it can be more serious even up to a cancer. This needs to be evaluated by a Dentist for what it is and what is the best to do.

What leads to mouth ulcers?

Tobacco & alcohol

Tobacco and alcohol cause mouth cancers that cause serious ulcers. Nutritional deficiencies, viral infections, trauma, poor oral hygiene and autoimmune disease are some of the other causes.
