I've heard that if you stop the medication that is causing you lupus it will go away eventually.
Yes, lupus can hurt when your joints are inflamed. I use heating pads, ice packs, and muscle rubs. I take hot showers to ease the tenderness.
If you do have the type that won't go away it's not a death sentence. With proper care and medications you can live a long and fruitful life.
You just need to learn to adjust to a new way of life.
Have you read lupus.org? It has some wonderful tips and information.
Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, OA, Depression, and Allergies
When life throws you lemons....
Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))
