Hello,I'm 45 and was diagnosed with SLE about 5 years ago. The symptoms were mild but enough to make me feel awful! I've managed to cope without taking meds and have had lots of osteopathy, which really helped. But, over the last 4 months my symptoms seem to be coming back and are worse than they were! I've been to the Dr with a long list of symptoms but she just wants to treat me for anxiety. I really want some bloods done to see if anything has changed.
The worst symptom at the moment is a burning mouth, swelling and burning lower lip, irritated skin on my face, back, stomach and arms, even my eyes feel hot! I'm going to see a different dr this afternoon, but don't hold out much hope. What to do?
