    hi my name is zed
    i was diagnosed two years ago i seem to cope pretty well
    but suffer from the occational flair up.
    does enyone suffer with bloating and bad wind as this seems
    to be a big problem for me since i have been taking plantqil
    i think this board is a great idea as i have no support groups near where i live look forward to eny replies.
    kind regards zed x

    your bloating and gas are from food sensitivies. Maybe just taking digestive enzymes and/or hydrochloric acid will help. Maybe find an alternative to plantqil (I have no idea what it is)?

    Hi Zed, welcome to the board. Glad you are enjoying reading.

    What do you have? FM/CFS ?

    Can't help with your question, I do not take that medication.

    Sometimes support groups are hard to find in different areas.

    We do have a link for Support Groups listed by states, if you are interested try going to the 'Home' link at the top of this page, and its on the lefthand side of that page.

    Glad you found us, and hope we hear from you often.

    Shalom, Shirl

    I could not take the plaquinal because of the tummy upset. The gas and bloating were just way to much. There is a lupus board on this site.
