I was dx a year ago with lupus sle, been struggling with the meds, the last few weeks I noticed I was getting sores on my face, and having major flare symptoms. It all came to a head with off the chart joint pain and ulcer type sores on different joints. They did a biopsy and believe I also have discoid lupus..... does anyone have the experience of having both? Oh and it still amazes me how little even the medical community knows about lupus, I had nurses walking in my room asking me what lupus was!!! When will this disease get the respect and awareness it should??
