One of the things that bothers me the most is the severe skin tenderness I usually get around the end of the day. It goes right along with muscle pain but feels like bad bruising and sensitivity, like I've been beat up...does anyone else get this and if so, what can be done to ease the pain ...nothing as far as meds help. I have lupus and fibro (along with scoliosis and back damage) so not sure what this symptom belongs to but if anyone has any advice I would super appreciate it... Thanks.View Thread
I have most of the symptoms you do but I have been diagnosed with lupus and fibro... Any doctor can run a blood test to determine a diagnosis. Have you asked them about your concerns of having lupus? 5 to 6 yrs is a long time to suffer .....View Thread
