Hi All
I have been have been coming to this site a long time, and I think you all are great, I was diagonas with Lupus and sjorgrens last year, I think I kinda been in denial, the pass few month have been rough, I live in a small town and there isnt much in the help.Last week I went to the hospital with chest pain, when I was discharged, they gave me all my paper and got to reading them, what is Chronic parenchymal changes in lungs, and thickening of the lungs, and on my EKG it said Possible Inferior infraction? I have tried to search on this but it is way over my head,.... Is this related to Lupus.. Thank You Terri

Terri,
Welcome back and sorry it is for help and not better news. I am not sure myself what this all means but I am sure that there are people on the site that will help you very soon. I hope you are feeling better since you come home.

Hi Terri,

It could be but it would depend on your history and symptoms etc. Do you see a Rheumatologist? I would certainly take this report to them and see if they can help interpret it.

Glad you decided to join us but sorry you have had a hospital stay.

love
Lily

Hi Terri,

Welcome to the site. I am glad you finally decided to join us.

I wish I had a clear answer for you but I don't. As Lily suggested it would be best to speak with your Rheumatologist and/or Pulmonologist to find out if the changes are related to Lupus or not.

I hope they were able to give you some relief in the hospital.

Take care,
Lazylegs
