if you have a moment go back into my posts and read my plight with sulfa meds. It is a good possibility that I dont have lupus now but if you look at my frantic plight in the past month you will see a connection in sulfa meds and waht can happen if it is taken by the wrong person. I think I had sirum sickness like syndrome which is a fancy fraise for an alergic reaction that is not anafalactic. it is delayed. I have my down hill complaints starting with the begining of how it all started all the way to my temporary paralysis in the hospital.
I even said at one point oh well ill take the sulfa anyway because a bad flare up is better than an unattended infection. look it up you can read it all say susie posted antibiotics on that thread that you should dicuss with your doctr as being ok. but dont just take things for granted and take any old drug. I am now going to see an immunologist/alergist to see what I can take just to be safe.
btw the serum sickness theory for my sudden illness has not been proven yet and it really is just something I read when I google sulfa med reactions but it does account for every new syptom I have had that is magically clearing up now.
