It has been a long while since I have been on here. Mostly because when I scrolled thru the posts, some of my questions were answered. Mainly because, I am just used to dealing with stuff alone.
Well, my last Rheumy visit with a new doc(I get passed around since I go to the VA) the doc, two ladies told me there is a new term they are now using. RHupus. Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus being active at the same time. The lead doc said I was her first patient with this and was really thrilled to ask me questions a bit too eagerly.lol
For me, it was more of a vindication of why I felt awful on all kinds of levels. Once in awhile I can tell which pain is coming from which but mostly, they like to work together on me. Still can't do much for me-just lovely meds but it was nice to know having both attack me at the same time wasn't just in my head.
