Hi Lisa--Why don't you contact me on my e-mail ***@****--it's easier and there's no space limit. I'd like to help you figure out your situation. I want to look for info about the lamictal to see about DILE. And as for the hair--I have a friend who's experiencing the same thing. She uses Nioxin and has had some success. Have you had your thyroid checked? Low thyroid can make your hair come out by the handfuls. I also have that--Hashimoto's which made me more succeptible to the DILE. As for me--I'm starting to see a good bit of improvement. Mornings are worst--always achy. Going to try to taper down to 5mg prednisone on Sun. so I can get off. W/B soon.
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. It has been about a week since we chatted. I see your not feeling well my prayers go out to you and your family. I to have not been good. In fact my doctor put me on a diffrent type of medication to prevent and control seizures. The other is to help me with nerve pain. Lets chat again and have a better day ok! p.s. I love to cook to especially when I don't burn it. Cheers!
I posted on Medhelp about my appt. It went as well as I could've hoped. The rheumy thinks it's drug-induced lupus. I had 1 test that came back questionable--I think it was the ant--DNA one--but he said he takes it with a grain of salt because of the way the lab does the test. He said everything else and my symptoms point to DILE. He did more bloodwork and said as long as it is the same or better than before, he's sure of the diagnosis. So I'm very much hoping my labs are OK. I've been feeling better, but it comes and goes. Some days are better than others. Mostly I have joint and some muscle pain. He's going to try to wean me off the prednisone over a month or so. It take 10 mg-5 mg-10mg for a while, and then taper to 5 until I can stop. How are you?
Just a quick note to say hi!
