I know lupus varies greatly from person to person and flare to flare... but I still have been feeling very much like an oddball. I got sick six months ago and was diagnosed with lupus nephritis a month later. Basically it went straight for my kidneys, do not pass go, do not collect $200... I was almost at kidney failure by the time we got to the biopsy. Up until about two weeks ago, I didn't have any "normal" lupus symptoms (joints aching, rashes, etc). Now that my kidneys have half-healed I don't even really have fatigue problems - no more than usual, anyway.
Two weeks ago, my wrists and elbows started aching when I move them, or apply pressure. So my questions are... is it expected that this can still happen even though I am on 3 grams a day of Cellcept? Is it common to have just two joints hurt and not all of them?
I haven't been clear on whether the joint pain comes even when you are between flares... I kindof expected that it didn't and so this makes me worry that I am flaring and my kidneys are still in danger even on heavy Cellcept. I don't see my rheum for another month so unsure if this is worth calling about or not.
Thank you so much for any help you can give!!
