Welcome to the site. I am 49 and have had Lupus for most of my life. I did not get diagnosed though until I was 36. I hope that you can find another student in your college that has Lupus and that you can relate to. Please keep posting as there are a lot of good folks that come here and they are very knowledgeable.
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.
