    I got some of my blood tests back and Lupus is still suspected but so is Crohn's as both came back possitive. The good thing about that is that they both are treated with the same types of drugs Prednisone and immune supressants. Plaquinil is my doctors choice for right now been on it only a week and I haven't seen any really improvements just more dreaded "D" and nausea but I was reassured they are only temp side effects I hope !

    Has anyone ever heard of Lupus panniculitis (lupus profundus)?? I have sores and skin rashes that looks like this.

    Yes those side effects do subside. However, I am finding that those side effects are common for a lot of our drugs for this wonderful gift! (I am being sarcastic in that last line just in case anyone is wondering)
