Ginny, yes it could very well be from lupus. Hopefully it isn't. However once you lose your lungs you can't get theme back. I don't know how many people but barb and I are both on o2 24/7. you don't want to go there. Run.......do not walk to your nearest pulmonologist. I didn't see a pulm. for 6 years after I got sick with my breathing. My dr. kept saying it was ashma. Finally I saw a pulm. he said throw everything away it isn't asthma. By than it was too late.
please see someone and pressure them to take a good look. Don't let them blow you off.
crap I didn't even say anything funny!
Love people and use things, not love things and use people............
