Fighting for Answers
It's been 26 years since I was first told I might have lupus, and I still don't have a definite diagnosis. Because I have periods where I am fine, people seem to overlook the increasingly common times when I am barely functional due to pain, fever, and other "fun" symptoms. It can be so frustrating to know there is something going wrong in my body, but not be able to give it a name. My doctor and I have decided this is the year we will push for the right specialists, tests, and answers, in order to get the right treatment.
Have you experienced adverse side effects to your lupus medications?
