I encourage you to participate in our Breast Cancer Community . Since this is the Lupus community, your answers will be limited here. The Breast Cancer Community will be able to help as a support group and be able to point you to other online resources.
Sorry you were experience some longer than usual lag time with posts, Lisa. I hope things have improved a little bit. I've passed along your issue to let the team know.
Most of the time refreshing your browser window will show that your post is there, but it just hasn't made it through the cache yet. If you click on Discussions, you'll find it listed there sooner, and if you have any issues on that page a refresh (or two) will bring up the page, as well.
In the future if you experience any out of the ordinary technical issues, I would encourage you to take a screen shot, and let us know what operating system you're using (Mac or Windows) and what browser and version you're using (Explorer, FireFox, etc.), that would help troubleshoot it better
Welcome back to the Lupus Community and thank you for your questions!
First off, I'm so glad to hear that you've been in remission for 5 years. If the joint pain and fogginess are coming back, I'd really encourage you to talk to your doctor. It may be time to reevaluate your condition.
I'm sure our community will be chiming in soon, but I wanted to offer you this resource on Lupus Symptoms. It will give you a fresh reminder of what you may expect.
Please check back for more replies soon. We'd love to have any updates you'd like to share, too!View Thread
That is very cool, Rena! I tried to find a link to the article,but I guess it's not available online. It's just in their print version.
I'm always so happy when we see teens speaking out and the press picking up on it. We need more teens like that so others don't feel alone.
Different topic, our Raising FIT Kids Community will soon be welcoming pro surfer and shark attack survivor Bethany Hamilton. Bethany was attacked by a 14-foot tiger shark, lived to talk about it AND went back to pro-surfing!
