Welcome to the site. There are a lot of good folks that come in here. I am not a male with Lupus. I am going to be 50 in December and have had Lupus for most of my life. Though Lupus is more common amongst women, men can get this nightmare as well unfortunately. Lupus is a hard illness to live with at times. I hope that you keep posting. There will be others that come along to greet you too.
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.
