Welcome to the forum. I just read your other posting that gave us your story. I'm so sorry you're dealing with this disease and it's all happening in highschool. I started getting symptoms in grade 10, but it took until I was 26 to get a diagnosis. So you're well ahead of the game, and that's a good thing!!
I noticed my moon face disappear once I got to 10mg or less. That seems to be the consensus with everyone here. 10mg is the magic number. You'll get there soon enough! But give it time. I think it took a couple months at 10mg for mine to diminish significantly.
I was a basketball player too! I was a left guard. Loved the game. But my knees gave me major problems (now we know it was the lupus), so I quit playing it. I was in too much pain. I don't have the height you do though! You probably play the post position?
Do what you can to stay limber, active and mobile. I quit all that stuff and it didn't help me one bit. I needed to stay somewhat active, even if just a little bit. It's good that you're doing what you can to maintain your active lifestyle. Water exercises/aerobics are really great for us. Easy on the joints. But you have to be confident in a bathing suit...... I'm not. LOL...
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
