Hi everyone!

Just a quick intro. Im Alex and im a male teenager living in UK, who has just been diagnosed with lupus. In fact, I havent even got my results back from my skin biopsy (getting stitches out on Xmas day - lucky me :p)

I just want to say this site has some great info, greatly appreciated :)

Hi Alex, I just wanted to say Hi. I have a 13 year old daughter who was just daignosed. She too is feeling very tired lately on top of the fact that she has a lot of swelling in her feet and hands. One thing that I can suggest is that since your doctors appointment is not until March, make sure you write down all your questions/concerns you may have.

It seems like once the doctor is in front of you and trying to explain the ins and outs you always draw a blank. :hehe: Anyway, as for the being tired, my daughter will be starting prednisone in 2 weeks if the other meds to help her enough.

Good luck to you and Happy Holidays.
