Does anyone have more symptoms on one side of their body rather than the other side?
I seem to hurt more on the right side of my body rather than both sides. Does anyone else have this happen to them?
Or am I just wierd?!?!?!::?
I have more symptoms on the right side too, for example my right leg is less reliable, my right arm and knee swell much more than the left etc.
A friend of mine with lupus also considers her right side to be worse. I will wait with you now to see if we are both weird!
Hi. I also have more pain on one side. I have flares of nerve pain and it is mostly on my left arm and leg. Most of my joint pain is on my left side. I have not been dx with lupus yet, but I have been dx with fibromyalgia. When it flares, it is all over. So if you are weird, then I am too.:lol:
Interesting you should mention the nerve problems Raglet. Mine which has always been present on right side is now starting out in the left of course the right is also getting worse along with it, so I am not too good on my feet right now and my r eye face don't look too flash either It's all good fun isn't it
Interesting to know that it's happened to other people also. I thought it was just me. I posted the other day to say most of my joint pains had gone except in my left leg, ankle and toes! I've still got a dodgy left side now but my right side is mostly ok except first thing in the morning. Weird!
What a relief I thought I was the only one. I am right handed and my pain is always more prevelant on my right side, I will ask my rheumy on the 2oth and let you guys know what she says, hopefully she doesn't send me to a psych ward for being weird!!:lol:
Hi Laura, with me, it seems to just do what it wants to do on any given day.
I have had more pain on one side than the other, but it's not the norm.
With me, I am always pretty much an all over hurting person. And as for you'r question about are you just weird?? yep, that's what makes you one of us, we
are all weird here, smile.
Everything is worse on the left side for me. If I do get pain it starts on the left then goes to the right. I fall more to the left because that leg is weaker. Naturally I have to be weird and have a right arm that is weaker and I am right handed.
I dont have a positive dx yet either but i have to agree with most of you, i'm right handed and most problems start that side and tend to last longest! Funny thing is my twin who suffers similarily(sorry spelling) she tends to suffer on her left side! lol perhaps thats the twin in us that makes the whole!!!!!!!!!!
Cispence................I am also a right-sider. I have encountered many an ignorant doc that has informed me that Lupus attacks each side equally and that it cannot attack one side over the other. Kinda makes you wonder where they went to medical school......and avoid that hospital completely.
