I just went online & discovered this site. I have been inspired by your stories & helpful comments. It is often hard to keep positive with this disease although I am a fun loving, people person & have taught primary age students for over 30years now. I've been diagnosed with Lupus, Raynauds Syndrome since 2008 & Fybromyalgia since early 1990's. I believe I have actually had Lupus since my 1st child in 1982. Recently my increased photosensitivity has been scary, itchy & painful with over 20 sores/lesions on my arms & hands from scratching. Any suggestions to help me deal with this. Any one else dealing with this & how do you cope? Does this mean my disease is progressing? -(not my usual flare up symptoms). Shaky hands & numb toes too? Any suggestions? I take plaquenil & other concoctions of drugs. Can only see my rheumatologist on Feb 4th 2014.
