Thank you!!! Now i have a question!
Wow, such lovely support! So, the last couple days, i've been experiencing some weird things with what i think is my heart. I've woken up w/ racing heartbeat, or when i'm just sitting down it will feel like my heart beats REALLY HARD and kind of slow for what feels like about 3 times. I did a little research and it sounds like I should tell my doc as heart/lung conditions are common. The other thing is, i was looking at a rundown of pleurisy (sp?) and it is definitely something i have, and i can remember having as far back as 8th grade (i remember because it was the first time it happened in a car with my best friend and her mom). I would say i get the sharp pains about every 3-4 days but they don't really last, and i always thought it was semi-normal (which is funny, because a lot of the weird symtoms of lupus i just generalized as stuff that "just happens", its interesting learning that no, it doesn't happen to everyone, and yes there's a reason for it, haha) anywho, i was just wondering if anyone else experiencing it could give me advice or words of wisdom, since i am a "newbie" not only to this website, but to this whole disease. Thanks!
