Hi there I am also a new member today and trying to find my way around this site. I am a borderline case at the moment and have just taken some more blood tests (this time to check antibodies and dna).
sorry to hear you are feeling rough - can't understand why they have not given you something for the pain.

Hello Angelscry and welcome :)

If I understand rightly, they diagnosed you with lupus and then sent you on your way with no follow up? no treatment? no referral to a rheumatologist? :mad:

That sounds very odd to me indeed. You need to see someone about the symptoms you are having and see what you can do to help relieve them. There are lots of treatment options though it can take a while to find which one suits you best. Can you ask your GP for a referral to a rheumatologist?

bye for now,
Katharine

:welcome: Angelscry i am the same as katharine why have you no medication
if they know that you have lupus did they not start you on palquiene or pain meds.Can you not get something from your own doctor as he must know that you will need pain relief of some kind.Keep us posted on how you go Elisabeth:)

Hello and welcome to all the newcomers on this thread. Some of you might like to start a thread of your own in Introduce Yourself in case you get lost in Angelcry's thread:)

Take care for now

It would be a good idea if you go back to introduce yourself and start a new thread and tell everyone about yourself... that way you would have your own thread....
Looking forward to getting to know all of you ...Welcome again...
This is a wonderfrul site with lots of information and a ton of people who are ready to give their support....
