Hi, I just joined this site and chat group. My daughter was dx with Lupus of the skin, and also has symptoms of lupus in her body, but blood test is normal. She is 30 yrs. old.
Anyway she also has fibromyalega, which makes this harder. She is having a very had time now staying awake, wants to sleep a lot. And falls asleep very easy. It is all she can do to stay awake. It is to the point that she isn't going out much or driving, because she is afraid she will fall a sleep. Is this a part of Lupus? or should she take a closer look at her medications ?
What type of meds do most people take for the symptoms of Lupus? Also she was told by her Rhumy to stay out of the sun, use netragenia sunscreen. Any comments about this? Please help me to understand Lupus.
