    Smile Hi all

    Sorry that my post have been few and far between. I've been going through some bad health problems. Between Jan -April I was in an MS relapse with ON and also was diagnosed with Lupus. Plus for that past year my left shoulder has been causing me pain . I just had a MRI on the shoulder Tuesday and the results came in on Weds.. Which may mean bad news ,I go into see the doc to talk about the results on the 27th. Now on top of all that I have pluersy and had to retake the Lupus panel,APS screening ,crp,esr blood test today cause doc thinks my lupus is worse than he first thought. I been seeing sore (light raised rashes ) on my and red spots. Plus the vasculitis on my legs. I'm so tired of all this. And now I may have to have surgery on my shoulder . This is all wearing me out.
    I also have an appointment to see an MS specialist down the hill from us. This clinic also has a MS support group and research center. So I guessing that because I have both MS and Lupus their probable wanting to find out more about this rare bird. But to my I don't understand why is all that rare cause I've seen others on line with both so this all seems so strange.
    Well thats part of what been going on in my big confusing life.

    Hugs
    Dawn

    I do have a lot going on but need to get better soon. Our Church has a new ministry helping those who need support for varies things in life (health,divorce,grief ect...) and I need to be there for them and not them worrying about me. I know have to wait until Jun to start any kind a DMD treatment for my lupus and MS . But with possible shoulder surgery coming up that may get put on hold .
    We been thinking that my tendon problem in my shoulder was probably caused by the 2 cortisone shots I had for my neck. I had both shot in that shoulder and had horrible reactions both times. Found out today that one of the side effects to these shots can be ruptured tendons. That was something that I may have like to had know prior to getting the shots. Oh well live and learn .
    Right not I'm dealing with the pain and intestinal problem . Most likely due to stress. Wish my doctors appointment was tomorrow just to get it over with. But then again tomorrow is good Friday so it will be a good day anyways.

    thank you tgal . I make sure to post more . I've been helping out so much on PLM and taking care of my family that I've been forgetting to take care of me. I'm going to start slowing down some.

    Hi Dawn,
    Welcome back. You probably know that Rob has both Lupus and MS. He might be a good resource for you.
    Take care of yourself.
    Hugs,
    Marla
