While waiting for others to offer their experience, I wanted to pass this information along - Lupus Symptoms . It does mention mouth sores, but be sure to have your doctor take a look to get you the proper treatment for these symptoms.
A friend of mine has this and has opted not to have surgery. After many second and third opinions at major medical centers decided to take the conservative route, have yearly MRI's and treat symptoms as needed.
Her hearing has been affected she wears a hearing aid, but it continues to decline. She sometimes has head tics/tremors and bell's palsy type facial symptoms along with vertigo.
She has had bad months and will then go for many months without symptoms.
Dr. Louise Chang from our WebMD medical staff is going to be taking part in a panel discussion at the White House on Monday, June 11 — Online Seniors' Health Town Hall -- regarding affordable health care for seniors.
If you are a senior or a caregiver for someone who needs affordable care, we'd love to gather your questions and comments for Dr. Chang to present to the panel. Providing these questions give the folks who make the laws insight into how REAL people are affected by their decisions.
We appreciate your feedback and candor, and look forward to passing it along.
Would you pick a city in a different country? Do you live in a big city now and want to switch it up?
I would pick New York City, just for a year. I always leave wishing I had more time to see more sites, experience more of the museums and see more shows. I don't think I could afford a year in NYC though!
