Where should I go to obtain proper medical treatment since the VA Hospital doesn't seems to care?

I have SLE, in which I can not be in direct sun this causes a problem with me severe dark skin discolorations and skin pigmentation on both arms, legs,and I am self conscious about wearing short sleeves under a light weight jacket when dining in a resturant or at someones house, since I reside in Arizona. My body rejects alot of medications that a normal person with lupus can intake. None of these doctors want to put me on any meds, what is my next option in fighting this illness.

Hi Roschelle,

Have you been in touch with the Arizona Chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America? I imagine they would be the best people to advise you. Their website is - lupus.org/webmodules/webart...

I'm sorry I can't help more, but we are based in the UK so don't have a great understanding of treatment options available in your area.




Thank you for the info.............Have a wonderful day.
