EMG Testing And Biopsy

EMG Testing And Biopsy

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

Does Anybody With Discoid Lupus And Lesions On Their Scalp Still Use Hair Color With Amonia?

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,
to help me stand up and walking. He knows I don't walk very good and lose my balance. He is always giving me hugs and kisses!

Selena Gomez Says There's Only A 3-5% Chance Of Her Lupus Returning After Kidney Transplant

Selena Gomez Says There's Only A 3-5% Chance Of Her Lupus Returning After Kidney Transplant

I've been researching famous people with Lupus and SS to figure out what works and what doesn't and I stumbled upon Selena Gomez's story. But I'm so confused by her statements. She's stated in interviews that there's only a 3-5% chance of her Lupus ever returning. Okay I'm confused because I've never had a doctor explain Lupus like that. In my case I've tested positive for auto antibodies that will never go away,… read more

I like to hear Toni Braxton.

Does Everyone Who Takes Prednisone Gain Weight?

Does Everyone Who Takes Prednisone Gain Weight?

How long after you begin taking prednisone do you feel the side effects? Like specifically have the weight gain? Does everyone experience weight gain? Selena Gomez, Toni Braxton, Nick Cannon and others has Lupus but they are small. It makes me think that there is a way to avoid gaining weight...is there?
