So I have never had any kidney problems to date... But recently I have been feeling like I've been having a UTI, but nothing burns or hurts, just have to pee so often but not much comes out...

I have been looking for months for some kind of support group or seminar in the Danbury, CT area and have not been able to find anything.Does anyone know of any or know a good place for me to look?

Thank you. It's my own fault just didn't get the chance to get more before I ran out.

Just starting azothiapin, did anyone have any side effects or advice on how to best manage this medication?
I wouldn't risk it but I have a kidney transplant to worry about and don't want Lupus to become active more than it is already and lose this kidney.
I was in the er last night. I’ve been having horrible kidney pain in both kidneys. I also have a kidney stone. They said I have urine left in my kidneys so I have a kidney infection. Anyone else go through this pain? I’m still new to lupus!
