im asking on behalf of my younger sister who also has lupus, the cold weather affects her badly, she has a lot of stress in her life right now which how we try we cannot lessen it for her. she literally has lost most of her hair on the back of her head within 4 days,her hair is now so thin you can see her scalp. her fingers have swollen so that simple tasks are very painful, her shoulders hurt a lot too and her fatigue has worsened.
she takes 400 plquenil daily and paracetamol (as ibrophen has damaged her tummy lining) and ozmaparole (for excess tum acid)
please can someone offer me advice in what to say to her to make her go to her gp, there must be something they can do to ease this sudden flare as shes in a lot of pain,its distressing to see. will a steroid jab help??
any advice would be greatly received,thankyou x
