I have been symptom free with my lupus for about a year and now all of a sudden out of nowhere my joints are still swollen and painful. the connective tissue in my scalp and neck (throat) are sore and I'm getting an ulcer on my tongue. I'm trying not to panic but I'm super upset! during my remission I finally got off prednisone, lost 100 pounds, got in shape and felt wonderful. I am desperate to do something to stop this in its tracks!
