G'day Jaycee from a Taff in Oz... Perth
I too am worried as I am a newbie, diagnosed with a yes to lupus 2/3 weeks ago.. I do have a problem with an itch, but due to Lupus I am not sure as of yet. It only happens to me on my legs, and after I have shaved them, I have tried waxing, and creams, lotions, but still that intense itch.. It keeps me awake at night, and cant even put my two legs together... after about 3 days it goes away... I was so glad for winter, so I did not have to de hair myself so much... but now Summer is here, it will all start over again... Like you I too am ignorant to all this, I had never even heard of Lupus... So I guess we can learn together, and help each other... I am from Perth WA.. You ? If you hear of a remedy for intense itch, please let me know... For my sanity sake..
I have posted all my woes in the newbies section, I hope someone will be able to shed some light on things for me.... If you feel you need a shoulder, or a good ear, then please feel free to unload on me... Lets try to keep smiling, as there are many in the world who are even worst than us... May God give us all, the strength to stay on top ...... My real name is Janyce... I am often called Jaycee ") but my name is pronounced Jan eece..hugs from me to you..
I am sad
I am blue
I will now feel better
because I have you
My fellow Lupies......
