Hi

I am still waiting for blood test results and an official diagnoses from my Dr but she is definitely thinking I have Lupus. I am also a Type 1 diabetic. For the past two weeks I have been so weak and in a lot of
pain. I do not know how to cope with this pain and weakness. I have been sleeping a lot but my arms
and legs feel like lead weights and it is difficult to get out of bed. I have mobic for my osteoarthritis but
it is not helping.

My husband will not acknowledge my illness and just says "you will be allright" - I am recovering from a 28 day hospital stay where my gallbladder was eventually removed but I suffered complications and was
in the ICU for a week. I went home in April and then started developing more common Lupus symptoms -
Like the malar rash, fatigue and pain.

I would like to know any suggestions for pain relief and for getting my energy back.
Thanks for any advice you could offer.

Prayers and well wishes for all.
