About Me: Male, 43, Frankfort, MI, member since Mar 2010
Diagnosed in December of 2009 with Lupis and trying to move forward with life.
Currently, experiancing SEVER muscle pain throughout most of my body at most times and worst when laying down. Extreamly bad joint pain that veries in location but mostly hands, knees, and lately hips or shoulders. Always tired, no amount of sleep helps. Lately due to the intensity of muscle pain unable to sleep at night. Irritable intestinal system. Mild muscle twitches and occationally jerking. Thought focus probles along with memory lapses and fogginess. Sometimes do not feel pain when I should. Sesseptible to bactirial infections, especially respitorial and very high resistance to viral infections. (at least one good traid off) Recently been developing small skin ulsurs that was told were from the lupis and too much UV exposure. ODD allergies to things people are not normally allergic to... like human hair. (seriously) Loss of over 50% of original physical strength and told by my physical theripist I will never gain much more back than I have so Physical Theripy DOES help people. It also relieved SOME of the pain and shakes. (was down to about 25% of original strength)
