Hi everyone! I'm new to this side.I have just been diagnosed with SLE. I am still taking 25 mg steroids per day. Actually I became ill three months ago and i had fever all time and felt so tired.Few days later it started rashes on my face and body.Then I visited to a doctor and he gave me blood test for ANA and it was Positive.My doctor has put me on prednisolone , Hydroxychloroquine and methotrexate 205 mg. Taking those i started getting well. Now I am felling much better but I know I am not cured absolutely. I am taking medicine till now. In the mean time i have come to know Lupus is not curable but controllable. My physician suggests me to learn more about Lupus and I found this site LUPUS UK. It helps me a lot. It teaches me how to fight against this disease. But unfortunately there is no one near me who is suffering SLE..So if anyone suggest me how to control this disease and What will happen next. i had scars , they are improving but my hand there are some scars which have not removed and they give me pain .I feel very pain n my left hand . sometimes it starts drizzling , sometimes i feel like energy-less just in my hand and often gives me a several pain which i can't describe even in my fingers i feel like they pinch me or biting me . i really hate this feelings and already told doctor but he is not seem very interested .but i want solution for this problem if anyone could suggest me it will be very helpful cause i don't want to live in pain all time. i want to live happily with my SLE,please anyone could suggest me anything ?
