Hi! I jam just wanted to know what is the definition of remission? Does it mean your totally off your meds?
Hi gna716 :lol:
My doctor explained my remission this way...I still have some symptoms of the disease, but they do not require medication for the disease. I do, however, still take medication for the overlapping illnesses (fibromyalgia, Raynaud's etc.),
I still get joint pain and fatigue...might be the lupus or it might be the fibromyalgia....I only take the meds as needed now!!
Does that help you???
Peace and Blessings
I am in remission, but am still required to take hydroxychloroquinine. I still have aches and pains, and a few other syptoms (Raynauds, hair loss, moods, depression) but at least I'm not seriously sick.
EVRY TIME I GO TO THE DOC, WELL IF YOU CAN CALL HIM THAT, I HAVE BEEN THROUGH 3 DOCS NOW, ONE TIME I WILL GO, AND I HAVE ALL THE SEMP, I CAN GO BACK IN 1 WEEK AND I WILL BE IN REMISSION, IT COMES AND GOES, AND AS SOON AS THEY TELL ME THAT, THEY SAY IM DONE I DONT HAVE LUPUS, IT JUST KILLS ME,, SO I DONT KNOW ABOUT THE WHOLE REMISSINO, THING,
