Hello my name is Kim, Im nearly 50 and was told last year by my doctor that I had Lupus.
My symptoms are extremely painful joints, muscle pain, headaches, tiredness, mind fog.
Since I was a child, whenever I stress and worry about things, I get a patch of skin about 3 or 4 inches in size anywhere on my body, limbs, head, face etc that is extremely painful but you can't see a red patch or anything, it looks the same as the rest of the skin around it. I can't touch it or have clothing on it or if it was on my head, I couldn't brush my hair......is this part of having Lupus or not?
Im having a flair at the moment and read that CBD drops help with pain. I bought Medi Hemp 'Hemp Complete' 10 and have been taking the drops under my tongue morning and evening for a week so far but can't feel any improvement.....am I taking the right thing or should I be getting a higher strength?
Sorry this is a long message, when I asked my doctor if there was anything I can do, she just said "No", so Im in the early stages of having to do my own research. She doesn't seem to be offering any advice. I even had to ask for follow up bloods to be done so I could check for myself incase there were any changes. She hasn't referred me to any specialists etc.....not sure what Im supposed to be doing!
Any replys greatly appreciated.
