Happy Birthday Sabby and welcome to our forum. Please forgive me but I must say that I am jealous because I'm 59 years old and I have never been in remission. Having confessed, I am very sorry that your Lupus returned. It must have been quite a shock. The joint pain and fatigue can sure be difficult to control. As for your skin issues, I agree with Melissa that since Lupus/fibromyalgia are kinda common companions fibrosis a real possibility. Your rheumatologist will easily be able to make the diagnosis.
Another possibility is the solu-medrol injections. Quick acting steroid injections can almost literally make one's skin crawl. It's done it to me more than once. Be sure to talk with your Doc about your skin and I hope you find relief for all of your symptoms soon. Love, Butterflake
