I experienced my first attack of lupus a year ago, now looking back all the symptoms had been there for years but until I became unable to barely move and demanded a blood test my virus turned out to be lupus! I was told it was probably lupus but would have to wait 3 months on the NHS to be diagnosed which meant no treatment, so I paid privately to see a consultant. I was taking steroids up until June and I have just carried on taking Hydroxychloroquine. I have always been quite restless and struggled with sleeping But over the last month I am constantly itching I saw the gp who suggested not taking med for a few days to see if this eased symptoms so now on days 3 came out in a rash yesterday on my face so wondering if I'm about to experience a relapse symptoms not improved taking piriton which was helping me sleep but doesn't seem to be working now I don't know if anyone else has experienced this, the itching used to just be in the eve but now it's constant. Any suggestions would be appreciated not sure how much longer I can cope
