Hi, I'm 23 and have been diagnosed with lupus SLE just over a year ago. I get am on 200 mg of hydroxychloroquine and and trying to decrease my prednisone and have got down to 5 mg but have had to increase it again as haven't been feeling great. I have been seeing a Chinese doctor every week and have acupuncture as well. This is really helping with my back and joint pain. Over the Christmas period he has been away and don't know how I am going to make it another week till he is back. I also see a sports injury guy who give me exercises to help my back. I do feel like an old lady as after work all I can think about is if I'm going to be able to get to bed by 8:30.
Main question I wanted to ask was does my finger look like I a lumps rash or is t chill blains like my GP thinks( it's not cold) if anyone is willing to help I am willing to send a picture. Please help, I want to nip this in the bud before I have a flare up. Any advise would be amazing as I am still learning about this shitty illness. It has ruined my life already.
