Hi, this is my first time posting. I was diagnosed with lupus panniculitis about 2 months ago. Mine started out with a small bruise on my leg that within a month wrapped around my entire calf. After seeing 5 specialists over 4 months, I was officially diagnosed after 2 biopsies. Now I have about 4 hard , painful nodules in both my legs. And they also itch like crazy. I take Plaquenil 2x a day. That has helped with the fatigue, headaches, hair loss etc but nothing for the panniculitis. I am hoping to find some new friends on hear that can shed some light on this rare form of the disease or that I can just vent to. I am a stay home mom with 2 young kids and this has impacted my daily life tremendously. I look forward to hearing from someone.

Welcome to healing Well -

Lupus panniculitis isn't often mentioned here -- I don't know much about it myself. Hopefully others will see your post soon who know more about it and are better able to converse with you.

Someone was one here recently with it. I don't remember if she's still reading and posting here though.
