Gosh, bhkhhh, I don't know anything at all about lupus attacking the bowels, but I'd be at my rheumy's door begging to get in and get an answer. I'll never forget the time when my sweet grandmother was hospitalized with heart failure so I took off work and drove several hundred miles to be with her when she died. I knew she had a similar situation as yours and informed the nurse. It turned out that her heart failure was due to severe constipation. They then treated her and by the next morning she was back to normal. This is nothing to fool around with. I've known personally and seen how horribly painful it is and I sincerely hope you can find someone who will help you. And help you soon.
