Hi everyone. I'm new here.
I'm waiting to see rheumatologist. I had blood tests in December and my c3 was low which indicates lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. I have rash on my face, hair falling out and scabs on my scalp, fatigue, swollen ankles and legs ache soo much going uphill or stairs. My face goes red in the sun and depression is so bad some days. I have a disabled daughter who needs me. I just wanna get better. I am doing lupus diet. This is avoiding inflammatory foods. I don't eat potato, bell pepper, tomato. So you avoid nightshade. Also no gluten or dairy. If you get inflammation down in your body symptoms should improve. Anyone else doing diet? Oh I also take omegas 3, 6, 9 as they are good for inflammation too!
