Has anyone had pleural effusions associated with Lupus? I am having my second one in two years and it is very scary. One doctor seems to think it is Lupus related.

Welcome to Healing Well, Vivian!

I haven't had that, but I'm sure one of our members does so hopefully someone can provide you some feedback soon.

Lupus confuses everyone, even the expert Lupus doctors, so you are not alone!

I hope you feel better soon,

Lupus confuses me too!

I have never had any issues with pleural effusion. It seems like everyting is lupus related thats part of why this disease is so confusing.
