Re: Lupus and Lungs
Dear Ravae, Hello & welcome. I don't have first-hand experience with lung problems, so I'll speak only to your general questions.
There are some "sticky posts" at the top of the thread list. In the one titled "Answers to Lupus Test Results Questions", the moderators permitted a resource to be cited, which has lots of lupus info, on lungs, meds, etc.
Also, the "Resources" box above will take you to more reading material, too.
Rheumatologists specialize in lupus, but some people may use just a GP. But if major organs are affected (like heart, lungs, kidney, or central nervous system), I think most people would prefer a "rheumie", if possible. Rheumies refer patients to additional specialists, too, as needed (like neurologists, pulmonologists, nephrologists, cardiologists, dermatologists, etc.) With best wishes to your mom-in-law & to you, Vee
