Regardless of your lupus, consider going to a good OBGYN and have your hormone levels tested. I just started taking estrogen with testosterone because my sex drive as gone from a high 10 to a flat 0. It's no way to live. I'm a little concerned that the estrogen might cause me to flare, so I'm being very careful and am watching my body and symptoms closely. I'm determined to find the fine balance between meds and lupus. Mostly, I want to get the most out of life that I can.
I'll be anxious to hear what you find out.
By the way, you and I are at opposite ends of the cycle of life, so I'm not suggesting that you do what I'm doing, just commenting that we shouldn't have to settle for lack of sleep, no appetite, no sex drive, and depression. Keep looking for answers till you find them.
