Re: please help

Weight gain is also very common in autoimmune disease. One does not have to be ANA positive to have lupus, BTW. However, at least you are being treated for something! How long have you been on your treatment plan? That can take a while to work, as in months. It is also a terrible time of year for flairs both spring and fall. Depression is also associated with many autoimmune diseases. Have you talked to your Rheumatologist specifically about that possibility, in light of your disinterest in things, or in just dealing with your illness. Best wishes!
