Welcome to the site. My name is Kathy and I have SLE Lupus. I will be 50 years old this month. I have had Lupus from what the Rheumatologist tells me for about 44 years, basically all my life, but I did not get diagnosed until I was 36 and nearly died from it. I am wondering if your doctor may have put you on Imuran as that is one of the drugs that seems to help me along with Plaquenil. I dislike Prednisone and refuse to take it due to the horrendous side affects I experience with that drug. I hope that the doctors can figure out a good medical regime. I don't knnow much about the pregnancy with medications as I had both of my children before diagnosis. I was told when I got diagnosed and put on medications not to have anymore children. I was 36 at the time, so that did not bother me. Have you talked to your doctor about having a baby?
There are a lot of good folks in here that have had children while on medications and maybe they could address this issue better. 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.
