    Unhappy Newly diagnosed

    Hello everyone

    I just got a call from my doctor saying I have Lupus. I also may have a urinary tract infection but they are doing cultures on that. So far, I'm trying to figure all this out. My worse symptom seems to be fatigue and muscle aches and pains sometimes.

    My feeling right now is: It stinks to get old.

    Hi omy,
    How are you feeling in yourself with the aching and does it ease for you at times plus as the doctor mentioned prescribing any medication to help you in anyway and life does stink as you get older i definitely agree 100% on that statement.lol
