I was diagnosed with lupus sept last year.
Now my wrists are so painfull they click and so do my knees,I wear supports. Innicial medication was prednislone (steroids) now I am not using steroids but I am still taking hydroxycloroquine 200mg. I am worried that the joint pain will stop me working within 6 months, because of the rate of the pain increasing.
Has anybody was put back on prednislone for joints rather than dermatology?
Also lupus sufferers are suppose to stay out of the sun and use 50spf sunblock but the body produces wit D by being exposed to the sun. My q is - are there any benefits of taking wit D ?
I am currently taking codliver oil capsules with glucosamine.
Any other advice for joints? HELP!
