I have been diagnosed with lupus and fibromyalgia about seven months ago. I have had Reynaud's since 1997. I had back surgery and my orthopedic dr. said it was from the hardware near my sciatic nerve. NOT!! Eleven years later, I find out it's an autoimmune disease, to go along with the other two.. Therefore, who knows how long I've had lupus and fibro. I am on Plaquenil twice a day. I would like to know if anyone else is experiencing these things: My hair in the front is getting very thin in the last couple of years. I forget things, constantly. I've had a skullcap headache for a few months. My neck from c3 to c7 is bulging and compressing nerves. The facet joints are hypertrophic. I have never injured my neck. This just happened..Is it from lupus? I also have gerds. Not to mention, I just ache. I feel so different from everyone around me. Please, if there is anyone out there with all or some of this, throw me a lifeline.
