hi devilducky, sorry no-one has taken the time to explain things. most of us are able to lead a normal life, although many have to modify there activities. trying to put it basically...... our medicine is designed to slow down our immune system. it is currently in overdrive. if you can get the balance just right, it is possible for the lupus to go into remission. this does not happen often..... so many of us need to do a balancing act with our medications. we do this balancing act by taking 3 monthly blood tests. the doctors read the tests and adjust our meds as required. if you read some of our posts ..... you will see many of us still work. unfortunately some of us cant. a rheumatologist is a doctor who specialises in our type of complaint. so he/she is the best person to treat us. but please read some of our older posts, they are our experiences with lupus.
When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.
