Hi everyone...my name is Laura and I'm from Panama, I was diagnosed almost a year ago...but due to the Rheumathologist that was treating me that never indicate me to drink any pill...now I have one of my kidneys compromised....i had a biopsia and I have a mixed nefritis type 2 and 5 .... I start my treatment with prednisones and plaquenil but when the Dr. starts to reduce the dose ...they had to include ciclosporyn to my treatment because my kidney was making resistaance to the medication... I had to quit working... and I was just starting all over...I'm just wondering how long a crisis could last?.... I already have 3 months and I'm kind of tired ...starting from the point that this is my first crisis.. and dont know how to handle this... Tired of prednisones.. I'm taking a dose of 25mg .... I need some support from people that could help me how tto control this...
