just diagnosed with lupus this weekend
I was in the hospital getting a solumedrol transfusion for my MS and doc , say that I have what he's calling for know a mild lupus. I've also have Raynouds , DDD,spondyosis,sero neg RA ( but we are not questioning this dx's because of the Lupus),hernia,colitis,legally blind,ON's PN.
This has been one crazy week already and I haven't started the prednisone tapper yet. More joy to came.
He also said that my bloodwork in abnormal but didn't go into detail cause in had a friend visiting . So I have to make a follow up appointment within the week. My last blood test should a slightly high red cell count but he wasn't to worried about it. And the steroids are making my blood sugar go up . So no extra sugar for me . I trying to work on that one but so far failing.
I'm hoping you all can help me learn more about this disease and cope. I'm finding in hard to know which symptom belong to what disease. Its confusing.
Looking forward to getting to know you all as much as I can.
