My daughter is on hemo dialysis for end stage renal failure due to lupus and her doctor is telling her lupus does not act up while she is on dialysis I need to know if this is true. Can anyone answer this question because my daughter is in constant pain and always sick to her stomach. Last night she was up all night vomiting and feeling like she was burning up if that is not lupus then what is? Please someone answer this for me?View Thread
I hope we can keep in touch I am having a real hard time with this and am not working right now. Taking care of her is consuming me but it is where I am needed right now. Thank you I recently asked the Lupus foundation in our area the same question and they are suppose to get back to me will let you know what I find out.View Thread
