Welcome to the site. There are a lot of us here that have SLE and other autoimmune disorders. Everyone here is very supportive and understanding. You will get some very good advice and help here. The folks that post here are wonderful. I am not new to Lupus either. I got diagnosed in 1996, but had symptoms nearly all of my life. I hope that you keep posting and welcome to the site.
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.
