Hello, I was just recently diagnosed with SLE a couple days ago, after many Doctors, countless bloodtests, and even a surgery. The blood test had a titer of 1:320, homogeneous pattern with particular antibodies detected. I don't have much joint pain at all, sometimes my hands hurt, or my knee, or feet, slightly. No swelling, no rashes. My main symptom is muscle pain/twitching, chest pains (all across the chest). I've been doing my own research and I am SO scared. I'm worried about my heart, lungs, & kidneys, and shouldn't I get these checked? Doc didnt say so, but still? He prescribed me plaquenil, and I hate taking conventional meds. Is there any natural remedies? I know nothing about this disease....I'm so scared. Any suggestions??
