Welcome to the site. I am glad that you found this site. There are a lot of nice folks that come in here. My name is Kathleen (Kathy) and I have SLE Lupus and have had it for 44 years or more. I am glad that they were able to diagnose you pretty quickly before the disease had a real chance to cause serious damage. I hope that you keep posting.
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.
