Hello Jules and welcome!!

I'm sorry to hear that you have had such a tough time of it recently.

It's good that you have started on medication. I presume plaquenil? which is the baseline drug for treating lupus. If that's the case you need to bear in mind that it does take quite a while for the medication to start working, often between 6 months and a year. If necessary your rheumy can add other meds to the combination to help you until it does begin to work so if you're not doing well you should always make sure they know that nd not suffer in silence.

It's a pity about the dancing. A lot of us have problems with activities like that at times. I usually do aikido and ride horses but haven't been able to for a while. Hopefully with time and the right med combination I'll be able to get back to it.

bye for now,
