Random Pains

Random Pains

Is it normal to experience random pains flitting here and there? So for example I’ll just be sat watching tv and I’ll get a sharp pain in my rib, then a zap in my leg, a sting in my toe, a twinge in my hip and the saga continues 😂 hopefully I’m not going mad and someone can relate!

How Do You Know If Symptoms Are Lupus Related?

How Do You Know If Symptoms Are Lupus Related?

Hello My Friends,

I've been having a cold which involves a sore throat, coughing at night mainly, mouth sores inside of mouth, and congestion. My question is how do I know if it's Lupus related? From this page, I've noticed that everything is linked to lupus. How can I differ from mouth sores that are from a cold or from lupus? Etc? I'm so confused and everything that happens to me I relate to lupus. Any tips, suggestions, or comments are welcomed with an open ear. Thanks

Muscle Spasms And Cramps

Muscle Spasms And Cramps

I am not sure if it's related to lupus or not. I get really bad muscle spasms mostly in my legs..so bad it brings me to tears. I do get them sometimes in my abdomen as well. My hands/fingers and toes cramp up at time as well. Just wondering if anyone else has had this. I do drink alot of water so I don't think it's from dehydration. ...
This site is a god send so nice to be able to discuss with people who can relate.

I take vit D, Calcium/magnesium, drink lots of water. I have no problem walking. The cramps last minutes. If they last long enough and r bad enough, I’m very sore at that location the next day

How Can I Relieve Stress?

How Can I Relieve Stress?

Since the beginning of 2017, I have been under a lot of stress. Job related, home related, relationship related, as well as health related stress. I can't seem to find a way to deal with it, and it is starting to stress out my fiancee as well, who only wants to help me. I want to go for walks, or go hiking, but due to lupus, am either too tired to do it, or because of my job, not enough time in a day to do it. I've started eating junk food because of it, and I know it needs to stop asap. I am… read more
