Hello everyone!
Can anyone explain to me why lupus patients have such bad heel pain? Many people that I have talked to with lupus talk about the heel pain. I have been on plaquenil for about three weeks now- it is helping all my symptoms except the heel pain! It is difficult because I am feeling better, but that doesn't do me much good if I can barely walk!! Sunday was one of the worst days so far! I seriously couldn't put much pressure on my feet. Does anyone have suggestions on ways to help it?? I try flexing my foot several times before I get out of bed- that helps some. But there are those days that nothing helps. Thanks for the answers!
