I am so glad that you have found a good doctor who cares about you and your symptoms. Unfortunately, some LUPUS patients are not so lucky.
I had heard about the Duregis Pain Patches...let me know how they work for you.
You are so right about our need to stand up for ourselves with doctors, employers, and even family members, to make them understand that our symptoms are not in our heads...they are real and they need treatment!
Best of Luck To You
PEACE AND BLESSINGS
