I am newly diagnosed and since coming on this sight have learnt lots of useful infomation , however , things that i thought were just normal problems now seem to be the norm for lupies. I have dry itchy eyes, and a lot of the time a dry mouth. I get pins and needles and numbness in my hands and feet. I suffer with major headaches. My daughter was born prem and needed special care. For about two years now i have noticed my hair falling out, not to the extreme of bald patches, but enough to worry about. I have a hospital appointment on friday, do I mention these things? Would appreciate some advice. Thanks.
