Ive just been diagnosed with mild Lupus! Im currently feeling confused! Ive been in a lot of pain for 2yrs!!
The consultant was very matter of fact! He emphasised the word mild and I'm now feeling very unjustified for ever having complained about pain!! Life for the past 2yrs has been hard i had a new born and at times couldn't even hold him, the simplest of
tasks at times were hard to do!! I brought my partner with me when i got my results so that he could understand that i wasn't making this up and that at times i would need his help more!! Yet i came away from my consultation feeling like i had exaggerated everything!! Which i know i haven't yet have that doubt!! I was given hydroxychloroquine tablets to start taking!! When I read the leaflet it said your doctor should carry out an eye test b4 you start taking them so that over the years they can monitor your sight to make sure it hasn't been affected!! He never did this with me nor was i given any info on the condition!! There was no explanation of what would happen next if anything!!! I asked would these tablets take away the pain ect!!! He said yes and that the symptoms would stop!!! I guess what i really want to know is this true and also am i alone in feeling like this?? Thanks x
