I've noticed within the last year my nail beds are very sensitive & the area by my cuticles constantly ache. When i got my nails done, i got gel and noticed that when i cured the polish in the uv light my nails and fingers were so sensitive and in pain under the light. Almost like they were on fire and stinging , Has this happened to anyone else and is it lupus related ?
I have been using Avenno products, non-scent and the stress relief. This includes name brand and generic. Lotion and body wash. But every time I shower my skin gets a ton of pimple like bumps usually on the left side of my body. They burn, patches of irration. I've been taking very cool showers and maybe 5 min in.

I just started feeling these bursts of electric heat shocks. Hard to explain but I feel like my body is being pounded with rain or sleet.

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.
I've been on Pred for 7+ Years and can't seem to get off it due to severe chest pain whenever I go under 5.5mg. Sometimes I worry that it's all in my head but I honestly don't think it is. I was diagnosed with pericarditis early in 2018 but since they think it's gone (Ultra sounds and all agree)
Has anyone else had this issue? What did you find help? Any detailed advice is welcome!
Thankyou in advance
How many of you have insomnia and what are you prescribed or what do you take to help you sleep?
I've always had either light to moderate blood cells in all my urinalysis. My doctor never seems concerned about it. I had it checked some years ago by urologist who said it would clear up on it's own. That was years ago.
My doctor has started a plan for me to go med free soon and I was just wondering if anyone else has had this and how you found it coming off all medication?
