Does anyone else experience tooth pain? All of my upper teeth just ache all the time.
I have tooth pain in my upper teeth all the time. Is it because of the Lupus or side effects from medication?
I used to dye my roots only with Clairol root touch up. It’s time for me to cover those “few grays”, but I’m a little nervous to cause a bad reaction.
I've been so afraid to color my hair, but I did before I left for vacation and it didn't seem to have any adverse effect. Although I left the coloring for only 20 minutes. I use an all natural hair… read more
This is the third time my 5 year old has come to me about his concerns.....
My son and I are very close and open with each other. He asked me "what is going to happen if I die"? He does know
Mommy doesn't feel good a lot. He knows the name of mommys disease, Lupus. He is such a great helper to me. He is always helping, holding my hand,

We'll, last night he cried and… read more

I had my routine EMG testing on my upper and lower body. My neurologist said my legs are still getting worse. Left leg is really bad. My arms are not really
showing anything on the testing like he believes should be. Due to the weakness in my neck, arms and hands being pretty bad. So, he is requesting for me to have a biopsy done on my arms to check the tiny nerve cells on my arms. He thinks there is some underlying issue causing the EMG to not be able to get a reading. I do have Lupus… read more

It helped for a little while but LDN works best.
Hello all, hope you are enjoying a peaceful Saturday. I have had low sodium/chloride on and off for over a year now. The last test that I had a few weeks ago, the levels were seriously low (low enough to be hospitalized). I did not have any obvious symptoms. I am confused as to why this is happening. I have both lupus and sjogren's. Sjogren's causes me to be very thirsty. I've been told conflicting things about hydration. I am now adding Propel once a day. Anybody have any thoughts about… read more
Thank you. I will check this out.
I want to try supplements to lose some pounds I’ve gained since I’ve been diagnosed. I don’t want to get too heavy, I know my rheumatologist told me to eat healthy but I feel like that’s not enough for me.
I'd avoid any diet pills, for sure, Neek. Good luck.

I have an appt with PCP today and want to discuss. How has it helped you with your Fibro and any side effects, because I am the side effect queen, lol. Thanks
