Has Anyone Had Troubles With Candida Or Thrush And How Did You Get Rid Of It For Good?

What Can You Do About Swelling In Wrist And Feet If You're On Blood Clotting Meds?

I have a friend who is newly diagnosed with lupus and she can't take any ibuprofen or naproxen. She's on blood clotting medicine. Her wrist and feet are super swollen. I don't know if ice would be good. I don't use ice ever but I don't have thin blood either. I'm not sure what to tell her. Any advice would be great please and thank you

A MyLupusTeam Member

Hi there, I also get swollen but I think it is due to the inflammation. I took water pills and it work. But speak to your dr . Gentle hugs
