I've done everything I know to do and no improvement.

I eat clean, excercise, take suppliments, get plenty of rest, minimize stress and I still feel horrible. I can never get energy. It is starting to depress me. I am allergic to SO many foods and eat predominately vegetarian. Am I the only one? I have followed all of the best practices and still it doesn't help. How can I accept this as the rest of my life?

Mouth sores, Meloxicam

Hi! I was just diagnosed with ANA negative Lupus about a week and a half ago so this is all new to me. I have been on Meloxicam since August (started me before the diagnosis).

What can treat these flu like symptoms???

I've felt like I've had the flu every day now for about 1.5-2 months. My skin feels like I have a sunburn, my face feels flushed, I go between hot & cold, muscle aches, and also some weakness in legs/arms. All of my recent labs (cbc/chem/TSH) are normal so the Drs think it's lupus related but have told me no medications can alleviate those symptoms. I'm currently on Plaquenil 200mg BID. I'm at my wit's end and so frustrated! Advice??
