Welcome to the forum. I sure understand how you feel. I have been dealing with Lupus most of my life, but did not get diagnosed until I was 36 and it nearly killed me. My husband understand now how serious this illness can be and he is supportive. I lost my job, because I was out to often with problems related to the Lupus. I had to give up the job. Well welcome to the site. There are a lot of great folks 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.
