I was diagnosed with SLE in mid-May 2012. I have suffered with terrible lesions on my upper arms, chest, and face for almost 10 years, with a diagnosis of Lupus finally being the culprit. I am curious as to how "common" my symptoms are. I also have Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and I am well aware of how stress and anxiety can increase flare-ups. What can I say to my doctor to get medications, besides the Plaquenil, to help control the nervousness, anxiety, etc. I am going to a Rheumy doctor, and my next appointment is July 25th. My main symptoms are the rashes, nervousness, anxiety, horrible night sweats, and hot flashes. Other than the Plaquenil, what medications could help decrease my symptoms? Thanks for the advice!
