    Red face newbie

    Hi everyone
    I am newly diagnosed with Lupus, and am just trying to get as much info as possible about all the symptoms others might have. Apart from joint and muscle soreness, and being exhausted all the time, I also get severe cramps, in my feet and calves and sometimes my back. does anyone else get this?

    hi and welcome,

    there is some important information at the top of each section,
    we call them "stickies".

    there is also a very good search facility, on this site.

    we have kept our older threads as they are our personal experiences with lupus,
    and can help with your research.

    apart from that remember there is no such thing as a stupid question ......
    please feel free to ask as you want.
    When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.

    Check with your doctor about the cramps in your feet and calves. They "could possibly " be due to low blood calcium or potassium. Only your doctor can say for sure.

    Also as Steve has said, read the threads, there's tons of information and experiences posted here

    Hugs and Good Thoughts
