I do not have heart problems but know others who have heart problems and have had attacks and surgery.  You have probably read this information but just in case.
Others with direct experience can respond.  Do you have an LFAI support group in your area?  In the Chicago area alone there are 1/2 dozen or more.

I've heard your heart can be affected by lupus as well as other organs.
