Since October is Lupus awareness month here in the UK I make no excuse that I intend (yet to see if I follow through…) to do a short post each day to tell you something new about this dreadful condition. Yes, I have Lupus and was diagnosed just over three years ago. I am in the happy position to say that right now, today at this moment in time, I am feeling better than I have done in all that time!
I have already posted about how I came to be diagnosed and some of what I deal with on a daily basis. So if you are interested just put lupus in the search bar up on the right of the screen.
So, today I will start with the SYMPTOMS- each individual is likely to have some of these at least and diagnosis is made by looking at symptoms alongside blood tests and looking at case history, and whilst medication can manage the symptoms to an extent the ongoing problem for most people is fatigue and joint/muscle pain.
There are many sites where you can read more but I suggest you start at LUPUS UK
See you tomorrow!
