Just wanted to introduce myself.  My screen name is "abyrd".  I am 28 years old, female.  I was diagnosed with SLE Lupus in September of 2008.  I am looking for a good group of people to talk to that can relate to my condition so I thought I'd give this site a ttingry.  I have been on this site before but never to post on the forum. 
I have 2 kids under the age of 3.  Since I found out I was pregnant with the first I stopped all my meds.  Was on plaquenil for a short period of time in between kids and haven't been on anything for over 2 years.  I just recently started seeing a Rheumatologist a couple weeks ago and am waiting on some lab work to get done before my next appt. 
For at least the past 8 months or so I have had pains in my arms and legs...mostly focusing on my ankles and wrists.  If i am doing cleaning or shopping and on my feet for quite a while it seems to make it worse once I have settled down for the day.  Does anyone else have this problem?  My dr. is checking for arthritis also.
Thanks all and I look forward to getting know everyone in this group =)

I'm plagued with hand and feet pain all of the time dispite pain meds. When I told my rheumy about it he said I had developed Secondary Fibromyalgia.
