Hello Mom2four and welcome. I have to tell you that although I'm in dx limbo, I'm pretty convinced it's Lupus. The lord blessed me last year with a very strong, healthy and big baby boy. I know now how much He really took care of my precious bundle. However I must say that since his birth my symptoms have steadily accelerated with every menstral cycle. I dread getting my period. My joint inflammation, fatigue and hives all inccrease and only prednisone seems to help. But thank God something does. I'm discussing possble hormone therapy with my PCP. You will see in some other posts that some people's Lupus is so tied to their hormones that they've even opted for sx. ((((((mom2four))))))). I hope they give you some good meds to help you feel better soon. This is a great place to compare notes with people going through what you are feeling. It's such a blessing not feel so alone and to know that what you're going through is not "just in your head". I'm so glad your baby is doing well, I can't imagine what that must have been like for you and your family. Best wishes and prayers.
