Hello my friends

Hello my friends, I have a new gp as my old one has quit and after plucking up the courage to visit her I'm glad I did. I raised my concern again about Lupus as my symptoms have changed and all point to Lupus. Anyway cutting a long story short after being led to believe they tested me before it appears they haven't. So I'm now booked in for bloods to find out for sure. I'm suffering at the minute with rashes and swelling it's driving me mad. I hope you are all as well as possible.

They do hurt but it's like everything is pulled tight. It isn't pleasant and makes moving around even harder. X

After a long wait I have seen the rheumatologist and he has started me on hydroxychloroquine for Lupus. My family say they have seen a difference in me which is good. I just wish there was a cure for the fatigue, it seems to be the worst part right now. I hope you are all as ok as can be. Xx
