I hope you are all well (whatever being well means to each individual!).
Like many here, I have SLE too. With my SLE, the joints and lungs are the problem areas. After a roller-coaster of highs and lows, I am feeling great these days. The tiredness, joint pains and lung problems are all still there, but so much less than before that I have no reason to complain. However, I have not been able to shake off are the constant colds and almost ever-present phlegm.
Do any of you share the same problem? If so, was there any specific thing that you found triggered it and did you discover any effective ways to combat it. Did it lead to something more serious? Personally, I try to avoid anti-biotics as much as possible as they simply stop working after 2-3 courses over a year or two.
