Hi everyone,

My doctor is testing me for lupus. I have had extreme fatigue for about 11 years. Lately it has gotten so bad that I can't cook dinners for my family or do much house work. I also have a great deal of pain in my upper back and neck. Also my shoulders and hips hurt. I have the "butterfly" on my face. I'm hoping the problem isn't lupus, but my doctors and I have tried many avenues of treatment that have not been very helpful.

Anyway, I want to say "Hi" and meet others on this forum.
