LUPUS UK

Virus

Been feeling pretty awful this week with this cold virus, very lethargic, horrible cough, sore throat and painful chest. Also started Azathioprine on Monday morning, was debating wether to wait until I felt better but decided just to start treatment.

Was at rheumatologist this morning and told him that since I got this virus I've had no flares at all. Was informed that this was unusual but myself and another patient today have told him the same thing. I learn more each day about this condition as I thought having a virus/infection would make the lupus symptoms worse.

Here's hoping the Azathioprine makes a difference and I start to feel more like my old self.

Wishing you all well x
