Weight loss is scaring me!

439 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Cher2
I have lost nearly 30 pounds in six months, and I do not need to lose any. My appetite is almost non-existent, I'm always worn out, and anything sweet (even just a small sip or bite) makes me severely queasy. I looked up the side effects of my Lupus meds, and all of them include loss of appetite, nausea, and possible weight loss. So I am giving serious consideration to going off my meds--albeit slowly and one at a time--because what's going on is really scaring me.

cher2 i hope today you are feeling somewhat better, but if not i think you need to see the gp, as i was loosing weight when i was poorly and didnt even know it was a flare...... so be careful, i went down to 8st 131bs and im 5ft 6inch. i had funny enough just started Azathioprine at the time, which was put up then quicker.

dont leave things if your ill and not eating like i did all the best
