Has Anyone Else Dealt With Others Being Rude About You Hurting From Lupus Or Being Sick? How Did You Deal With This?

Has Anyone Else Dealt With Others Being Rude About You Hurting From Lupus Or Being Sick? How Did You Deal With This?

I really don't like it when other people who know nothing about your illness try to be your doctor and give you grief about it. They can be so judegemental and rude. Colloidal silver was raved about by someone who I thought was a friend of mine for helping people with lupus. She didn't have lupus, but I gave it a try, and it did nothing for me after trying it so long. I was always nothing but nice… read more

Tonsils

Tonsils

I have randomly getting white pus pockets on my tonsils randomly about once a month, I have no fever and
my throat doesn’t hurt. I don’t think its strep or tonsilitis because I don’t have any other symptoms. This happens to me A LOT and I always get freaked out and I was wondering if I should go to my doctor tomorrow. I googled it and it said white spots on tonsils can be caused by a weakened immume system,
I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this?

10 Month Old Bruise

10 Month Old Bruise

Hi dear warriors. I've had the same bruise for +- 10 months now. Should I worry? I don't want to contact my specialist Dr or even GP if it's nothing to fret about. Also i don't want to run the risk of contracting the virus by going in to hospital for lab tests etc. I remember not hurting myself. That is just appeared. Got bigger and bigger and just stayed.

Also I fell in my house 2 and half years ago and my leg still have an bruise on it now.

COVID Masks: What Are Your Thoughts?

COVID Masks: What Are Your Thoughts?

MyLupisTeam Veterans, is this an ok use of the platform? Hoping so. I am still pretty new here.

Realizing this is a potentially polarizing issue, I'll just ask that we all be our usual awesome, accepting, calm selves when participating here. But, I was just curious how you all felt about the whole mask issue and why. Hoped to have a real discussion about it.

How do you feel when you wear a mask?

Have you done any online research on the issue?

Thank you!

Wow...that escalated fast & way out of control

Does Fibro And RA Go Hand In Hand With Lupus?

Does Fibro And RA Go Hand In Hand With Lupus?

I seem to have a few of the symptoms of Lupus, but I have not been diagnosed with it as of yet. I see my PCP, next week and want to bring this to his attention. Should I come right out and ask to be tested for it? Is there a test?

A MyLupusTeam Member said:

Praying for you. It doesn't go together but many with lupus have fibro.
