Okay so, not to long ago I woke up with bile in my mouth? And I was told that I have alot of stomach inflammation and that it complicates me to eat, but this happened to me twice before and I'm clueless. I also have inflammation in my brain and lungs but the doctor puts me on steriods. I've just felt sick lately but it's not the stomach flu. Also, I've had Lupus for about a year ? But it's gotten so bad lately, I lost 15 pnds in two days, (I weigh 118 and I'm 5'5) Is this serious? What should I do? :\

I think you should deffinatley tell your dr, as these symptoms will cause you to loose weight. How are you In yourself? Remember that it is your body and only you know it, if something doesn't feel right it's probably not. I'd say keep a diary of these kinda of things to show your consultant. If you need anyone to talk to I'm here.
14 is a naturally crapty age but with this i can imagine it feeling impossible.
Keep you head up.

I have had bile in my mouth a couple of times .. once i threw it up... black... that was gall bladder
when i wake up with it in my mouth it is more orangish...then when i stand up i start coughing and it seems like forever that i am coughing orangish stringy stuff from my bronchials or lungs.

I was told it could be slight flare with my lupus ( i have tons of problems so i don't want to give you a huge run down_

first acid reflux or gerd you need to elevate your bed slightly at the head board like bricks under it 3-5 inches... sometimes that helps. also you need to see your dr. not a rheumy.. he needs to refer you to a lung dr. some rheumatologist... will do x rays right in the office.. which is nice. you just want to make sure it isn't something that your immune system is causing.

are you on any drug for Gerd... or heartburn.. Omaperazole is otc and works well... make sure it isn't a sinus or bronchial infection that ... the color of the bile will indicate alot. I am guessing it is orange and that is good. now how orange is the question...

there is my 2 cent diagnostics... you could start at your family dr. or your rheumy, because you are under 18 i would start straight at the rheumy.

I hope this helped a bit...

I will keep you in my prayers... i hate waking up with that... i just got over it took 3 z paks... (antibiotic packs) but i am a hard egg to crack. lol.. you will be fine...
