Okay, so something new. I haven't had to shave my legs in over two weeks. No hair at all on my legs, and nearly no hair underneath my arms. And no hair at all on my arms. I did notice a few weeks back that my eye lashes are falling out and not growing back and my eye brows are thinner. I'm thrilled I don't have to shave, but now I'm wondering what's going on again with my body. Does anyone else have these issues? Does this go along with the lupus? Any advice on this would be wonderful.

Now that you mention it, I haven't shaved my legs for weeks, I have very little hair at all on my legs and scant amount under my arms. I have been overwhelmed with pain and fatigue I did not notice. I had shoulder length hair and had it cut 8 wks ago because it was falling out in handfuls. I thought it was just age. I noticed I do have a receding hair line now. My hair stylist said in 5 wks my hair is thinner but no patches missing. Is this connected to lupus?

Hi Ladies. I had no hair on my body for a couple of years. Also during that time I had small clumps of head hair fall out. The hair eventually grew back everywhere but not as thick. If you lose large amounts of head hair a dermatologist should be able to help. Love, Butterflake
