Hi there, just joined this really interesting site. I am 50 and have a number of conditions tentativily diagnosed as Lupus, but it has never been sorted as such since 1997. I have hypothyroidism, Diabetes, Rheum Arth, CFS/FM, Restless leg syndrome, IBS. etc.
I take a lot of meds for differrent conditions and wish that somebody had a wonder pill for everything. Been taking methotrxate for over a year and at review yesterday, was told I need to add sulphasalazine. I was also given a steriod injection (will affect my blood sugars). I am sure i am not the only one with multiple conditions but i feel that the specialists only see their own speciality with no cross over, sometimes there is disagreement between the disiplines with me stuck in the middle. I am ever hopeful and watching the research regulary.
