My symptoms started when I was 21yrs old. I had just gotten married and was working one of my dream jobs. I was first diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Then I was tested for Lupus. For years I was told I would never be off my meds. For about 5 yrs I was taking over 10 meds a day. I went to a rheumatology center and walked out taking only 5 meds. Today my Lupus is not active but I deal with fibromyalgia and chronic pain.
Interested in sharing your own diagnosis story, treatment experience, or another aspect of living with lupus?
Do you use a discount drug card at the pharmacy?
