I am glad that you have come to the forum and want to welcome you. I have heard that there are some folks with both RA and Lupus, but the two illnesses are separate of each other. I have SLE, but not Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have heard of drug induced Lupus. There was a man in the Rheumatologists office where I go that the same thing happened to him on Humara and the doctor changed his medication. He has RA and he was talking about the same thing as you. He said that once his medication was changed that the Lupus symptoms disappeared. I hope that this is the case with you. Saysusie will answer as she is very knowledgeable. I hope and pray for your sake that you do not have true Lupus. Hugs,
Lupus for many years. Like most of my life. Sjogrens that started at 35 and Scoliosis, Spinal Stenosis, Degenerative Disc Disease, Osteo-Arthritis of the spine, Ankylosing Spondilitis, Periferal Neuropathy, mild CP and now just recently diagnosed with PA. I had a disc replaced in December of 2007.
Plaquenil, Sulindac, Imuran, Celiac diet, Tramadol and B12 shot once a month.
