Hi, I just posted in newly diagnosed but thought I'd stop in here too and say hi and ask for any and all advice. I was just diagnosed 2 weeks ago but now realize I have been battling this Lupus for almost 10 years ...just didn't have a name for it. This last flare put me in the hospital and got the attention of a good rheumatologist ...thankfully. I'm starting to improve on prednisone and hope that soon this flare will be history but I wonder about this fatigue ....it's all consuming and unrelenting and I am barely functioning. Thank goodness I don't have to work and I have an incrediblly understanding husband. I would just welcome any suggestions or advice and maybe some ideas on how to cope with the muscle pains and the tiredness. Thank you very much.
