Hi magnolia, I just love that flower! So good to hear from you again! I am glad the doc gave you something for the inflammation but you need so much more I believe. It would be like giving you an aspirin for a blood clot but never really looking in to why you got one in the first place. I hope and pray that when you get to the states yo can get a good rheumy to run the full AI bloodwork and more importantly listen and hear the correlation between the sun and joint pain, plus family history. Bless you on this rough road.
i am glad you got some meds.
did you get a copy of the doctors report.
follow it up when you get home.
i hope all gets sorted out.
lupus when left untreated can cause major organ issues.
when treated anything is possible.
I do hope the anti-infammatory help till your able to get home and sort a doctor from your home town.
Yes the pain can come like that hitting you in spurts, then somedays it's never ending pain but i really hope you can get a descent doctor when your back to get you sorted out and a full diagnosis on what's happening.
Please keep we updated in the meantime.
