Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with Lupus last Tuesday. I was given some information at Dermatology but was in shock really to learn that I had an incurable disease. She asked if I had any questions but I just couldn't think straight and left without asking anything. I haven't started any meds yet apart from creams and gel for my skin and scalp, but these don't help the tiredness or pain. Will Dermatology even address these? Also I had a Gastric Bypass roughly 10yrs ago, so I have malabsorption due to having a small stomach and usually can not absorb enough medication to work. Can anyone offer any words of wisdom please. Don't go back to Dermatology until November - do I just wait?
