Welcome, I am new to this site also and to my Lupus. I have a similar story as yours. I am on the methotrexate and a few others at the moment been on it for 3 weeks now and still the pain is not letting up. I know that the past 2 years for me has been extremely hard and lonely as for 1 of those years while the doctors where trying to figure out why I was in so much pain my husband was deployed for a year and it was just me and my 2 beautiful daughters. Reading the posts really help me on the sleepless nights that I lay in pain. Knowing that I am not alone in this and that there are others who are living through the samething I am. hang in there, it has to get better or at least I pray it does. And the people on here are so great and encouraging. Look forward to talking to you soon.
Ill be praying for you!
