I was diagnosed with SLE Lupus in December 2000, i have battled with the disease for years until 2011 when i managed to find a way to cope with the disease. I changed my lifestyle completely no late nights, stopped drinking, eating healthily, exercising 4 times per week and had to accept that working part time is all that the i can manage, Things took a nasty turn for me at the later part of 2012, i was finally diagnosed in March 2013 with Endometriosis after under going laparoscopic surgery. I still have not recovered i feel like i am going through the wars. My lupus has flared up since August, i don't usually take Tramadol for the Lupus pains but everyday this week i have taken the drug to control the pain, i am house bound most of the time due to the two conditions.
I have constant back pains L4/ L5 C5 prolapse disc, Chronic pain of the abdominals, back pain, knee pains and headaches, Chest pains ( pleurisy) and Depression, and Chronic fatigue.
I am currently taking the following medication for my lupus:
Hydrixychoroquine Sulphate (200mg x 2 daily)
Mycophenolate Mofetil (500mg x 6 daily)
Prednisolone 30mg daily
Tramandol 50mg (when required)
And for the Endometriosis:
Zoladex implant (every four weeks until February 2013)
Naproxsin 250mg (3 x daily)
Tibolone Tablets (HRT) 2.5mg (1x daily)
I believe it the treatment I'm having for the Endometriosis which has triggered off my Lupus, is anyone else going through what I'm going through or can tell me if im on the right medication to control my Lupus attack ( just so painful)
