I was diagnosed with Lupus in September, but even 3 years before that, I had dreadful urticaria which seems to be triggered by UV light from the sun and from strip lighting. That is one of the main symptoms that I went to the doctor with. I've recently become exposed to UV strip lighting through my daily routine and where I have to go, and have noticed that I'm flaring again. I haven't had a flare since the summer. Today has been a terrible day for it! I have read that low Complement 4 levels are to blame, of which I have. Although I am now on Methotrexate which have helped push them up to the slightly more normal range! I just wondered if it was something which other Lupus sufferers have had to put up with?
Thanks in advance for any info!
