Welcome to the site. My name is Kathy and I have SLE Lupus and have had it for most of my life. I know I have serious pain in my joints and right now it is affecting my wrists and knees in a bad way, but the pain lasts a lot longer then a few minutes. It sounds like you could have Lupus, because the pains can hit any part of your body. I hope that they can figure out what is happening with you. Please keep posting. Maybe Saysusie and Oluwa could give you more insite. I know that for the doctor to diagnose Lupus you have to meet 4 of the 11 criteria that the Lupus Foundation has outlined. I just hope that you can find out what is happening with you.
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.
