First of all let me introduce myself. My name is Deanne and I have just recently been diagnosed with Lupus. I was very lucky to find a Dr. that recognized my symptoms and ran the appropriate blood work and sent me straight to a rheumatologist. I was started on Prednisone and Plaquenil. One of the main reasons I went to the Dr. in the first place was severe leg aches. The only way I know to describe it is it feels like the flu only worse. I've seen my rheumatologist twice since starting my medications, and I can say the "lupus" rash is better, fatigue is better and joint pain is better, not perfect but I'm not looking for miracles, however the leg pain is not.
So does any one else have problems with severe leg or other aches like this?
