hi and welcome,
let me start by saying we are not doctors .....
lupus is diagnosed by understanding symptoms and blood test results.
there is no exact test for lupus.
if you have been diagnosed before you have organ involvement ....
then you will not have the symptoms of organ involvement.
this is a good thing.
my suggestion is to take the medication and also ask for a second opinion.
you are always entitled to ask for a second opinion, and it is not unusual to do so.
may i say that if you do not have organ involvement, and the balance of medication is correct ......
there is a good chance of you leading a near normal life.
everyone reacts differently to lupus and its medications
lupus is your immune system in overdrive, so there is not steadfast way that lupus should react.
please read some of our older posts .......
there are our personal journey with lupus.
also use the search function .......
it is a very good tool to find threads on a particular subject .
When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.
