I think you need to see another doctor big time. I have had the Malar Rash on my face, but not constantly. The Malar Rash does not have to last over a month to have Lupus. There are folks that never have this rash and still have Lupus, like Rob, he has never had the Malar Rash. I think you need to see another Rheumatologist. Keep posting ok.
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.
