I was diagnosed with Lupus(SLE) about 10years ago. My main symptoms were initially severe joint pains and swollen joints. However, I had my first major flare about 1year ago, when I couldn't stand/walk without great pain. Since then I have been feeling constantly exhausted and can never seem to have enough sleep. I also developed a rash (pinkish cluster of spots/rash) on legs, arms and chest. What worries me the most is that this rash has now spread to my face. My skin feels really tight and very dry and it is so itchy. I have tried E45, ultrabase and Eucerin none seems to work and if anything, it seems to be getting worse. I am currently on 250mg of chloroquine(not hydroxychloroquine) I am getting so depressed with feeling like this I really don't know what to do?? I am not due to see my rheumy for a few months yet. Has anyone got any suggestions???
