I agree with Hippimom, you need a new rheumy. He/she should be open to trying new medications. There has been a lot of progress in lupus treatment, with new options that might work better for you. Our bodies change a lot over the years, from hormone changes, stress, etc. So what once used to work for us, might not after a number of years.
Stay proactive and get another opinion okay!
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in, to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
