View Full Version : I may have lupus

04-09-2013, 08:42 AM
Hi everyone,

My doctor is testing me for lupus. I have had extreme fatigue for about 11 years. Lately it has gotten so bad that I can't cook dinners for my family or do much house work. I also have a great deal of pain in my upper back and neck. Also my shoulders and hips hurt. I have the "butterfly" on my face. I'm hoping the problem isn't lupus, but my doctors and I have tried many avenues of treatment that have not been very helpful.

Anyway, I want to say "Hi" and meet others on this forum.

Hi Lori,

I also hope you don't have Lupus but i guess it does help to have a diagnosis so you can start treatment and to at least know why you feel so lousy. Let us know how you go with the tests. Good luck..
Best wishes to you
