hi troll-my heart really goes out out to you.I have not yet been diagnosed with lupus..but everything is adding up and 2 of my docs say it is.but rhumy has to make the call.so stupid.I got sick 3 years ago,thought I was having a stroke.for almost a year I couldnt even think properly...was thinkin I was really going crzy-then I asked the doc to check my b12.long term low b12 can cause permanent brain damage as well as nerve damage.so I go get a needle every 2 weeks.Im taking vit d as well..and am on paquenil.I get really short of breath and a heavy chest like im havin a heart attack.Im hooked up at night to a machine to get sleep.its not pleasant but I do feel better the next day.have you been to a sleep clinic?today is not a good day-feel like Ive been up 3 days straight...cant think rite everything comes out jumbled.then my family laughs...which it does sound funny...but I know its not.I understand you bein grumpy,I can snap on a dime,but its cuz Im just spent,sometimes ya wonder if its all worth it,but it is.and ya sure lose friends,cuz ya cramp their lifestyle.my hubby wanted to go on vacation overseas,but Im really not up to it..so he left it at that.the sun is deadly.if you are out,coverup good,cuz it will send you into a tailspin.

Troll,

If you are having all the health issues you are having and do not go to a Doctor, specifically a Rheumy.....you will continue to suffer and some of your symptoms can be a cause for concern regarding damage if left untreated.

There comes a time in life when we have to, those of us with chronic disease process', have to set aside our prejudice regarding going to doctors or taking pills....this would be one of them.

Why would you not seek treatment and suffer? Medical Science has allowed us to have within our grasp medications that can make life so much more enjoyable when dealing with things like pain, swelling, etc., This does not come with no cost, however and many of these medications have side-effects; they are however bearable and a price to pay to "have a productive as possible life".

I think if you take this advice and you are treated for your symptoms you will begin to look differently, fondly even, at the medical community.

Best of luck to you.......
