Sometimes we have to resort to steroids for a short period of time to get the flare under control. I think most of us lupus patients have a love/hate relationship with that drug. With all medications you have to weigh the risk versus benefit ratio. Then you are the only person who can make that decision. I know the risk that the plaquenil can cause retinopathy and the cellcept can cause lymphoma. But the risk is small, the benefit is great, and I make sure that I have those things checked regularly.
I'm not sure about the allergy thing. My allergies have kicked up but the lupus is pretty calm. The allergies will make you tired, however.
It really does help to reinvent your lifestyle. Eat a diet low in animal fat, high in fresh and frozed fruits and veggies, avoid processed foods, get regular exercise, stay out of the sun, learn and practice stress management techniques, learn to prioritize your activities and say NO often.

Although steroids may alleviate the pain, it may cause more damage over time. Is it worth it? With your daughter, showing signs of Lupus doesn't mean she also has the disease. Has your she been tested for Lupus? Her symptoms could also be stress related. Maybe you should get a second opinion.

Just as there are laws in the physical, (the world we see), that say a one hundred thousand ton aircraft carrier can float or a one hundred ton jet can fly, but only with the proper knowledge, there are also laws in the spiritual, (the world we don't see), that a person can use to eliminate Aids, MS, malaria, heart disease, cancer, blindness, lupus...etc. from their body.
www.sheep2lion.com will help you obtain the knowledge about those laws and more.

Hi, hedzy! OK, one in every of my all-time favourite moments on that exhibit was once the episode in which Kramer comes to a decision to undertake a section of the Arthur Burkhart (sp ?) parkway. When Kramer comes to a decision to widen the street through getting rid of a lane and fails miserably whilst it explanations visitors disorders, he douses the street with paint thinner. The scene in which Newman, who's using his mail truck with a few particles stuck beneath it that is capturing sparks far and wide, begins screaming because the street catches on fireplace even as he is making a song "Three Times a Lady" STILL makes me chortle so rough that I cry. Favorite episode, although, is the only in which Jerry buys the vehicle from Puddy and takes George with him. "Au revoir, Le George!" and the sweet line-up rock.

There is no cure for lupus. massages are great for help with the pain.

Originally Answered: Do you know of a teenager with Lupus and does Lupus have remissions?
Hello..well the answer to your question is yes. Both of these diseases can go into remission. My wife suffers from both and has had periods of remission and active disease (currently she is in remission) She was diagnosed with both at 15. Her periods of remission have varied from as long as 4 years to as short as a couple of months. There are tests for both diseases and even if she is in remission she is able to be tested. What types of signs and symptoms is she presenting?
