    Hi Ragdol! Hello to you from another Texan. Many people with Lupus also have Fibro and it tends to make things more difficult. You will find many of us here have what is called "overlapping illnesses". Although I am never happy when people have this (or any) Autoimmune Disease I am very glad that you found us! Welcome to the WHL family! I look forward to getting to know you!

    Welcome. I am new here myself. I sprained my ankle several months ago and I too find that now I seem to have lots of pain there. I started meds today for Lupus so we will see if the pain in my ankle changes with time.
