I've never come across anyone that has lost tissue in face, I've had three major operations in my twenties ( now 51 ) to build my face up to look normal. Very shy with my appearance and don't like socializing. Had full blown lupus since 14 years old. Sjgrens, borderline osteoarthritis,reynauds. And muscle weakness. I take hydroxychoquin, azathioprine, prednisolone, vitamin D. On and of calcium. Also get terrible shivers and skin is so prickly unbearable to touch and feel awful. Don't know what that is, it only happens at night. How do you explain that to doctor. Well that's enough about me. Sorry for moaning. New to this site.
