Diagnosis And Treatment

Diagnosis And Treatment

TWO QUESTIONS

1. What test proved that you had lupus
2. For those of you not on Big Pharm Meds, how do you treat your pain, fatigue, what helps
I am helping my friend with a college paper that she is doing. Appreciate your input

AVISE CTD
The Advanced Test for Lupus & Connective Tissue Diseases
The AVISE CTD test is an advanced diagnostic blood test for lupus and connective tissue diseases. AVISE CTD contains patented biomarkers and algorithms to provide improved diagnostic information compared to traditional lab tests alone. The only way to go.
I eat healthy food, stay active & love living my life
with my darling Bella/chihuahua. Food plays a huge part of
getting rid of flares.
We are blessed.

Hi,
My symptoms led me to a doctor. The tests are a lupus panel, rheumatoid factor and tests I can’t remember right now. They are many medications for lupus which you can probably find online.

I know that stress plays an important role, but also I noticed rashes all up and down my legs for no reason at all. And, I was told I could have been carrying my Lupus for a long time, before being noticed or had the right blood tests. Also, I had a severe tooth infection and that rose my blood work a little, but not alot.

Anti ds DNA, combined with the symptoms and the host of other lab tests that ended with negative results.

Pain I manage fairly well with over the counter anti inflammatories and at night those meds with 1 arthritis strength tylenol. I utilize my garden tub with very warm water with epsom salts and lots of stinky arthritis rubs like ben gay.

Fatigue is what it is. I go to bed, but if I don't fall asleep I get up and read and eventually fall asleep ... in our house I am allowed to sleep until I naturally wake up ... unless I have an appt or something I must attend to.
