My Lupus is attacking my kidneys and some articles say it's common and others say it's not. My rhuematologist and nepherologist seem to be surprised by this.
The only position i can keep my neck is straight. If I cock it left, right, forward, back, or any position between, about 1/3 of my scalp tingles. I have lupus and fibromyalgia. Which is the more likely the culprit and why (eg muscles press nerves vs body attacking nerves directly)? Anything I can do to stop it?
I went to the doctor today with horrible UTI symptoms. They are sending my urine off for culture but definitely say that it is “abnormal” and they are treating a UTI. On my CBC my white blood cells were in reference range but definitely way lower than what is normal for me. Could this be sign of a flare? I am having some symptoms as well. Increased rash, my face looks like its been baking in the sun, swollen nodes. Just curious if wbc could indicate flare.
One of my symptoms is muscle stiffness and spasm. The rheumy and I think the repeated problems and weakness might be a sign of PM/DM overlap rather than my Lupus and we’re keeping watch for that. Anyway...
What seems odd about my muscle pain is that when it happens I often get VERY swollen muscles. I’ll get a knot by my shoulder blade that feels like I’m being stabbed. After a day that knot is so swollen and tender you can see the lump coming up from my back!
Same with my shoulder pain or neck.… read more

I am having an extremely bad day. I was diagnosed with Lupus 20 yrs. ago. I am having horrible headaches! I don't remember what the treatments were at that time for me. Any help with this would be so much appreciated.
Due our chronic pain and fatigue, we tend to get very depressed. While this support group is a God send. I want to know if anyone would be interested in starting a conference call chat maybe weekly in order form a more personal unit. I feel so isolated and sometimes there i can go for days without hearing my own voice. Let know if anyone would be interested. Please !!!!!.
