I had been feeling bad for about 4 years, and I kept telling my doctors how I felt. They said that I have high blood pressure and I’m overweight.
Three months ago, I went back and told my doctor about my joints hurting, the rash on my neck, and that I am tired all the time. Also, my fingers would lock up. So I had blood tests run, and they came back as LUPUS!
I have never heard of lupus. It’s been three more painful months and I can’t see a doctor until 9/16/2012. So I am trying to FIGHT LIKE A GIRL! I just wish I knew how to handle the pain, but I am NOT GIVING UP!
