    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.

  • 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.

Trying for another kidney transplant!

I was admitted to hospital last week following quite a severe 'flare'? these episodes....
