    Hi I am new here. Does anyone have severe shortness of breath. My back and chest hurt so bad when I have a flare. I can hardly walk or even talk on the phone and feel like I can't get my breath. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

    If your flare is from Fibro, you might want to try the Fibro board here for help; if the flare is from Lupus, you might want to try the Lupus board here. I know sometimes Lupus does spread into other organs in the body.

    Carlafay, you may wish to discuss with your doctor a possible link called Raynaud's Disease/phenomenon. You could be experiencing these symptoms if walking even as few as 150 feet; having to stop to recover your breath and wait until the "attack" goes away.

    I wish you well!
