Hi everyone,
I haven't posted in very long time. I've thought of you all often but have had so much go on in my life. As some might remember I have SLE. In 2010 I was also diagnosed with CVID which requires weekly gamma globulin infusions.
about 2 years ago I found out I have seizure disorder I guess from lupus I know it's left frontal temporal lobe seizures so I'm always aware what's going on. I can't tell you how many stents have been put in my pancreas and removed due to chronic pancreatitis.
I'm on a weekly MTX injection for lupus.
I have wierd itchy rash on my right elbow and part of arm and also both knees is this from lupus? It's very itchy and often seems to get worse if I get hot or in sun. I try to avoid sun period but hard to do if riding in car.
I hope someone can help here. Also I had quit doing folic acid with the MTX. Is it really needed?
Hope all of you are doing well I can't count how many times I have felt like giving up..
Wish you all the best!!

I'm sun sensitive and have to wear SPF clothing.
I understand that folic acid helps with the side effect of mtx. I can't take mtx. I take Leflunomide instead.
