Welcome to the forum. I am sorry to hear about what has happened and is happening to your wife. I would be afraid to even try the alternative treatments as they can be dangerous big time. You have people on the net that are stating that they have a cure for Lupus by using herbs etc and it is a lie big time. My Rheumatologist seriously warned me about these sites and told me that unless he tells me that there is a cure, there is no cure etc. I feel bad that the Plaquenil messed her eyes up as that is one of the top of the line medications for Lupus. I am hoping that they can come up with better treatments and soon for Lupus. There will be others that will come on here that may have better answers then I can give you. Please 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.
