    Health insurance for rehab

    Hi! It's hard for me to ask someone familiar about this. So I require outside help... I'm looking for drug rehab for my sister. She doesn't have any insurance because she didn't work for a long time. I found info about rehabs where you can have treatment without insurance ( https://addictionresource.com/drug-rehab/no-insurance ) . Anybody heard about such centers before? What kind of documents do they need? And what living conditions do they propose?

    Lupus joint pain

    Just wondering if anyone else has noticed the joint and muscle pain seems stronger in muscles and joints that we're previously injured. I have had severe joint pain in parts of my hands that were burnt approximately 20 years ago. Along with pain in several joints that have been sprained, or injured somehow in the past. The joints on the opposite side of my body will also ache at times but no where near the same severity. I am new to this lupus thing and am still trying to understand my flare....

  • Lupus and low Immunoglobulin A levels (IgA)

    I was diagnosed with SLE 6 years go and am 23 years old. I also have celiac disease. I recently found out that my IGA (Immunoglobulin A) levels were extremely low. I take 200 mg of Plaquenil 1 x per day and I was wondering if that might be the cause. Has anyone else experienced this? I tried looking online but results were slim. Thanks for your help!

    41 years Lupus patient

    I was originally diagnosed with lupus in Oct. 1977 after it attacked both kidneys. Not until after I started dialysis did the disease go into remission. I have had 2 kidney transplants over the years and I'm still in remission. No pain, swollen knees, elbows etc. I am currently 61 years old now and on dialysis and doing great. Trying for another kidney transplant!
