It Has to Be Genetic

I am waiting to see a rheumatologist to get the official diagnosis for Lupus and Sjögren Syndrome and have already been diagnosed with fibromyalgia.

Dietary restrictions

I am 46 years old and I'm dealing with gluten and lactose intolerance and multiple food allergies, and the lupus just adds to the gastrointestinal misery I'm already in.

Family history of lupus

I grew up watching my mom suffer with lupus for years and never thought until recently I would be suffering her disease but here I am.

Searching for ways to cope

From the brain fog, GI tract distress, dry mouth and eyes, hair loss, migraines, light sensitivity, stiff joints, etc... I just want to find a way to manage the chaos my body is being put through.
