Older Women With Lupus03/14/2012 11:03:33
I am now 63 years old and about 15 years ago I started having joint pains and strange blood tests, feeling not well. I went from doctor to doctor wanting an answer. They kept giving me pain pills which I didn't want. Finally at age 50 when I felt much worse with extreme fatigue, butterfly rash, migraines, severe joint pains, and many other problems I found an internist who sent me to a rheumatologist. I was diagnosed with Lupus. Shortly afterward I lost my job after being sent to emloyee health repeatedly without complaints. I was forced to go on disability. Many diagnostic procedures and surgeries my condition is not much better. I pray for Lupus research. There has to be an answer. I have lost so much. Where is my remission?
