Hi. I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus a few years ago after many years of searching for the right diagnosis. I was also diagnosed with Raynaud's and Hughes. Two weeks ago I was also diagnosed with scleroderma and need to be tested for Sjogrens and Fibromyalgia. There really aren't very many people with this. I was wondering why none of my lupus friends could relate to some of my symptoms. Now I know why.
I haven't gotten the official word on which kind I have, but I strongly suspect systemic as I have pulmonary issues and my muscles in my upper arms are hard as rocks and don't work anymore. Has anyone found any natural treatments that help? I am allergic to most medications thanks to the lupus. Thanks and it's so nice to meet you all.
