Is this uncommon I haven't heard anyone say this happens to them.Okay I est like a bird here and there never big meals small snacks all day .I'm usually 120 thats my average weight.But at the beginning of a flare up my whole body swells.Then its as if I am eating a lot tho I actually slow down and dont even snack I more like nibble here and there.I get ulcers during a flare up as a phase that passes.After this phase I feel better in a month to 6 weeks.Then it's like bam!! Weight falls off without any change in diet just like how it came on.And within 2 months of feeling good I weigh between 115 and 135.Am I the only one this happens to??The picture is my normal weight I now weigh 160!!!!This has happened to me 6 times with every single flare up it never fails and always falls off .The picture is me 2 months after a flare up I thought might just kill me I didn't know I had lupus. I was convinced I had cancer and the doctors cannot find it.
