I'm currently in the middle of my 3rd flare in a little over a month.. low grade fever, vomiting, fatigue, severe headaches lowered kidney function, and the constant feeling of phlegm blocking my throat.

My current treatment consists of prednisone, zofran, Phenergan suppositories, norco and lots of fluids my rheumatologist sucks and my primary doctor is unsure of what to do.
Does anyone have bp high like 142/80 when your feel pain or headache? Does lupus make your bp high elevated and normal thank you all and have wonderful afternoon 🙏♥️

Ive been put on hydroxychloroquine and steroids about 4 months ago and am starting to feel so much better. How long does it normally take for a definitive diagnosis? Also how long did it take for brain fog to go away and to be able to think straight?

having episodes of bad pain all over my body, exhaustion, fatigue and joints. had 4 episodes of pleuritis this year but lupus tests are normal except ana test and inflammatory markers during episodes. on plaquenil. tried imuran but failed due to side effects. now want to add Benlysta. anyone else have lupus like this?
I just recently started plaquenil again. I’ve had lupus for years but in a flare now. What do I wash my hair with? I’m using a gray hair product now. Really scared this time over hair loss.
My Dr had prescribed Benlysta as my condition has continued to deteriorate. I was wondering if others here have or are taking it and if it helps or not. If it did help how long did you take it b4 u saw results? Anyone experience side effects and if so what were they?
