Firstly, I have not yet ( and hopefully won’t ) got a diagnosis of lupus, but an urgent referral has been made. Secondly, is there any connection between lupus and periods? I ask as my period had stopped for over three months only to raise its ugly head yesterday. But along with the usual period pain my joint pain has increased at least ten fold, so much so I can not walk up and down stairs as my knees are so bad ..... I going down on my bum!
Does anyone else experience a change in their symptoms? ...... oh and I am just edging into perimenopause ( the delights of being a women!!)
