Liver Pain

Liver Pain

Is liver pain common with lupus? I’ve had an ultra sound scan and nothing shows up yet the pain is persisting. Has anyone else experienced this? Going to ask my doctor for a referral to a gastro at my next visit.

Philosophy On Pain Meds

Philosophy On Pain Meds

I have been in pain and had symptoms for 25 years but have recently had a positive ANA and been diagnosed with Lupus. My dr has prescribed plaquinil and have been taking it for less than a month and have seen no improvement as of yet. The problem is that He is weaning me off my ultram because of the plaquinil. So the pain is the same, less pain meds, same 40 hr week. Im at a crossroads of trying a new dr. Any suggestions?

(No rashes or burns and I’m staying plenty hydrated with Pedialyte,… read more

Can't Take Prednisone

Can't Take Prednisone

Help! I can't take prednisone because I am allergic to it and Celebrex is not working for my pain and inflammation. Is there anything that I can request from my rheumatologist when I go to see him on Thursday. Also I want to stop my Plaquenil because I am having nightmares, horrible acne and my hair is falling out but not sure what other meds are good. Any suggestions would be appreciated!!! TIA
