WHen lupus is in high gear is it common to develop such problems as eye inflamation,bursitis and tendonisits?

My vision has been hazy and my eyes have been hurting and aching constantly.Finally went to the eye dr. I have an eye inflamation the produces the oil in the eye.SO I have to take an antibiotic for 2 weeks and use a steriod eye drop for 2 weeks then had to have a cat scan to check the blood vessels in my eyes and my brain.

Friday my right should er started to really hurt.He had been hurting for awhile.BY Friday night it was in awful pain.SAturday I had to go to an urgent orthopedic care center.Had an xray and found out I had bursitis..again..and had to get a cortizone shot.I had bursitis in my hip a few months ago and got a shot and then a couple of years a go had a few shots in my left shoulder for bursitis.

I am starting to get tendonitis in my wrists.The pain from my right shoulder is so bad it hurts all the way down in my hand.

I have had lupus test for atleast 5 years now.Only once has my white count come back low.Everything else has been normal.

I have raynauds and now just recently diagnosed with gastroparesis.

I was told I have fibro.5 years ago.But I can't help but think that all of this is connected to an autoimmune disorder like lupus.

I have roseca.1 dermatologist said she thinks that is what it is another said the same thing.It comes and goes.I have brown like patches in with the red blood vessels.Nothing scaley just smooth ,sunk in and brown.

I am just tired of being sick.It is obvious that something is going wrong.I am getting worse.I was told I had dysautonomia then got a second opinion and was told I didn't have it.

SO what do I have.

Very frustrated.

eyes still inflamed

well after two weeks of antibiotics and steroid eye drops my eys are still inflamed.I am using a new eye drop for inflamation given to people after eye surgery to help with pain.I am in alot of all over body pain now.I am in a fibro flare.My roseca is gone for now.And I have til May til I see my reheumy.I have a very good reheumy.She is one of the best in the state.I trust her.I just have only had 1 test to show low white blood count.Everything else has been normal.What lead me to lupus was the rash/rosecea on my face.Goes straight across my cheeks only.

I have been sick for so long.Pain so long.I feel I am beyond the point of fixing.And from what I have read about most autoimmune disorders predisone is the answer to most and I don't know if I want that.It is a hard life for us all.

Thanks for the support.
