I am a newbie to this site. My sle was 15 + years before being diagnosed. Till it nearly took my life 3 years ago. Found a wonderful doctor who saved my life. Please dont give up trying to find answers. Search your family history too. My grandmothers family were all early deaths. I found they were nearly all congestive heart failures at very young ages. Lupus means wolf in disquise. Iwas determined to find out what was wrong with me because for my children. ButI has helped my sister and other bloodlines too. My brothers did not make it and passed away young.I hope this message can help others find their way and get the treatment they need.
