Hello, newly diagnosed yesterday, for beginnings of lupus. Could barely move everything hurt so bad. So rheumie is putting me in planquil--spelled wrong, and prednisone, is this what you usually get for meds? Also got a shot in hip, a steroid to try to decrease pain and swelling. I have been really stressed lately, with trying to deal with it all. Got blood work back ANA was positiveg this is high so is sed rate,ch 50 complment, and c-reactive protein, gfr was low. No clue yet what this means will look into it further, not sure if I like the rheumie yet, she seems pretty laid back, but otherwise ok. Gotta run, thanks for listening.
