    Default Newbie here :)

    Hi all....
    I just stumbled on this site and by odd coincidence found a posting with the symptoms I am having...
    Let me back up a bit I am 37 and have been diagnosed for about 3 years in august. I take plaquenil daily, tramadol occasionally for pain. Earlier this year got weaned off prednisone. I have been experiencing what I assume is kidney pain. Right now its a dull pain but well I have a high tolerance for pain anyway. Also I have been urinating more frequently. I have not contacted my doc as the pain comes and goes and it just started this week... that I recall anyway because I generally block pain as I have had headaches or some form of pain every day of my life... So the fact that I have noticed it means that it is a different or stronger pain. Anyway I am trying to get in to see the doc but no luck as yet...
    Anyway I am done with my ramblings and I will sign off....
