Does your lupus ever make you tremble? It's like shivering, but it comes from within, almost like each muscle is quivering.

I hope you're feeling ok LOL x

Vicky,
I recall that "inner" shiver. I still get that periodically, especially if I am having a period where I am not feeling well. According to my rheumy, I no longer have lupus. After 3 years of having positive ANAs, anti ds-DNA antibodies, and the other criteria for lupus, in May, my blood values returned to normal. The rheumy thinks that my lupus was definitely drug induced and has since resolved. I started a new biologic, Simponi, in June. Keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't induce lupus too.

Hope you are doing better. ~~Ides

That's really really good news Ides. Three years seems to be a long time to have drug induced lupus, but
at least that gives me hope. It would be wonderful to cross one disease of my list.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you too. Is the new biologic given by shot, infusion or tabs? Stay well. x

Simponi is given once a month by subcutaneous injection. I give it to myself. Simponi is made be the same company that makes Remicade. So far so good..... scool
