    Hi, new to post. I have had Chronic ITP for 24 years now, just dx with lupus and fibromyalgia last month. Off work on short term and wondering how do you manage pain and work. Any suggestions would be great. Also would like to hear from others with this ex.



    Thanks for allowing me to join

    Hello and welcome to WHL! We are so glad that you joined. Your question is a hard one to answer because there is such a broad spectrum of lupus. There is mild to severe. Some people can get it pretty much under control with medications and go on to continue working with mild adjustments while others that have more severe issues may end up having to stop working. Either way it will take time to know and it WILL get better. The doctors just have to find the right meds for you because we each are different.

    once again, welcome to our family. Know that we are here for you
