I am hoping someone is able to share some experiences or advice as I am a little bit worried. I am a 28yr old female who has recently been diagnosed with class 4 Lupus Nephritis (only in the past month).
.I am currently on 60mg of steroids and immunosupressents along with many other meds as you can all probably relate to. I have suffered alot with water retention over the past 2-3 weeks.My whole stomach area is swollen and tight, upper legs are tight and full as well as ankle swelling. My dosage of furesomide has been doubled to 80mg twice a day but the water just doesn't seem to reduce. I seem to wee but its minimal. I have limited liquid intake to 1 and half litres per day and cut out salt completely as the doc recommended. I am unable to go to work and really have difficulty with my mobility at the moment as I am tight all over. I just want to feel mobile again.
Would any one have any other tips or advice at all?
Thanks in advance.
