Welcome to the forum. I am sorry that you are having problems. I have had lupus most of my life. I will be 50 in december. I am wondering what medications you are taking for your illness. I hope to hear more from you. This is a great site with a lot of wonderful people that are very knowledgeable that come in here.
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.
