    Default Hello from Nebraska

    Hello everyone!!!

    I am new to this board!!! I was diagnosed with SLE about 9 years ago. I am so excited that I found this, because I really have needed extra support the last few months.

    I also have hypoglycemia, lupus anticuagulant, fibromyalgia, asthma, a heart patient, and am being checked for crazy stuff going on with my head. My kidneys are most affected by the SLE, but I have plenty of other things that put me in the "5" critteria diagnosis category. I had to go on disability because I have been having syncope or seizures...they are not sure what for sure. Currently I am unable to drive, and will not be able to until they figure out what is wrong with my brain...other than the lack there of!!! Two years ago I had to have open heart surgery because of a calcified mass in my heart that was blocking the flow of blood back into my heart...I was in congestive heart failure, and the doctors all agreed that if I had gone in any later that it would have been to pronounce me dead!!!


    I'm a terrible speller ops: , and an extreme smart apple, but I feel that my sence of humor has gotten me through a lot!!!

    Sorry this is so long :shock: ...I look forward to getting to know you all more!!!

    Default lupus

    Welcome! I have CNS vasculitis and was diagnosed w/lupus in July. I've been going to a rheumatologist since 2001 for Raynauds, joint pain etc and had been diagnosed with UCTD up until this year. Isn't this a wonderful board? Thanks to Saysusie!

    Where in Nebraska do you live? We lived there for several years..you can PM me if you want. Would love to hear from you!
