    My Rheumy told me something I have known (at least suspected) for years. I have Lupus....DUH!

    I have suspected this for years...why am I having trouble wrapping my brain around it? I mean, I have thought this for so long.

    I am happy in some ways. The monster in the closet has a name...SCLE. So my grand total is FM, CFS, SCLE, Raynauld's, and possibly a bit of scloderma. My hands are puffy and a bit tight. SHe said she will hold off on that DX and watch longer. She said it is early if that is it.

    I started on the Plaquenil yesterday. I know it can take many weeks to see progress but today is a good day. I am not sure if it is the meds, the actual DX's, or if I am just doing better.

    Either way, today is a good day. I feel good, and I can stop wodering what I have.

    Thank you to all who have helped with my questions. It is a good feeling to know I can come here and get questons answered from all of you SMART, WONDERFUL, CARING people here.

    Hugs and love to All,

    I'm glad for you that you finally have a name to call what you've been dealing with for so long. I know what level of relief it brought me to have a name for my disease.

    Take care of yourself and know that I will be praying for you.
