Hi Ragdol! Hello to you from another Texan. Many people with Lupus also have Fibro and it tends to make things more difficult. You will find many of us here have what is called "overlapping illnesses". Although I am never happy when people have this (or any) Autoimmune Disease I am very glad that you found us! Welcome to the WHL family! I look forward to getting to know you!

Hi Ragdol,

A warm welcome to the WHL and it's nice to have you with us, so we can give advice in anyway possible besides so many threads for you to venture to understand your issues more and like tgal said there's many member's with fibro who will get intouch in due time.

Welcome. I am new here myself. I sprained my ankle several months ago and I too find that now I seem to have lots of pain there. I started meds today for Lupus so we will see if the pain in my ankle changes with time.

Hi Ragdol,
Welcome to WHL from yet another Texan (sort of). We lived in San Antonio for 17 years, and recently made a military move to CA. We'll be moving back in 2012.
I really think that we need to have a Texas get-together sometime (hopefully after I return).
Hugs,
Marla
