Re: HELP, something new im dealing with

I am young yet and have not yet had sex, but I can tell you that when I used to make out with my boyfriend...the pressure of his body on top of mine often caused problems the next day....in that the pain was often excruciating... I don't know if that helps...

Michelle,

Well, gee, I haven't had sex since I've had lupus.

However, as a nurse (disabled), and as a lupus patient, I can tell you that the autonomic effects of sex could definitely induce a flare. Your heart is racing, parts of you are flushing and having all sorts of reactions, you're breathing hard... what lupoid body in its right mind would not have something to say the next day?

Imagine sex as a workout. Now, you see the connection?

How to deal with that emotionally and relationally, I shall leave to those more in tune with that.

Re: HELP, something new im dealing with

I would sometimes have seizures, or be near immoblie the night of, or the morning after, my neurologist said it was estrogen that I was making, the raise in hormones was the culprit, it triggered some of my worst flares. My period also triggered flares as well, and joint pain.
