As I've said in a few previous posts, I strongly believe I have lupus due to my symptoms.
I was wondering if this could be causing my lung issues?
Starting 2 years back, I've been getting pleurisy on and off, which is annoying but I no longer rush to a doctor when I feel the stabbing pains in my lungs. I've been getting that more frequently in the last few months, which I think is because of flares but I'm unsure.
Last year around June I got pneumonia and was in bed for a month. Then in November I got bronchitis. Then this year in February I got bronchitis again. Just last night I started really coughing, have a fever and swollen lymph nodes, so I'm pretty sure it's pneumonia or brochitis again unfortunately. So I was just wondering if this could all be related?
Also, are people with lupus immunocompromised or just if you're on certain medications? Because I tend to get sicker than average over the last few years, but am not on meds yet.
