hello, my name is anca , i am 22 years old and i have been diagnosticated 4 years ago. I have red what you wrote here but i did not heard of such simpoms in Romania. I had problems with stripes on my face and my kidneys. i had gain in weight becouse of the prednison but only that, nothing else. I talked with other persons who were diagnosticated with lupus and they do not have your simtomes .My treatment has the folowing medications: 100mg imuran and 7.5 mg prednison.
