Has your mother gone to the doctors so that they can run test to confirm that she has lupus. Not everyone gets the same symptoms so no one can really tell you what is wrong with your mother other then a doctor. So you should take her to the doctor.

Re: Concerned daughter need help

Hi. I agree that your mom should be seeing a doctor regularly, if she isn't already. Drs. who specialize in lupus are called rheumatologists. If other types of specialists are needed, the "rheumie" will set up consults as needed.

Also, know that lupus can be treated. Many of us do much better on medication. Regular check-ups are very important.

Patients vary widely, and so do symptoms. Lupus really is a disease with many faces, ranging from mild to severe internal organ damage---which, again, is reason for your mom to get firmly established with a rheumatologist.

To do more reading:
(1) Search for "lupus" in the search box in the upper left of this screen.
(2) Look in your local library for hardcovers. Two authors are especially good: Dr. Daniel Wallace and Dr. Robert Lahita. They both cover all aspects of the disease.
(3) Look for a local support groups. Your local hospital should be able to tell you how to contact such a group.
(4) Keep posting & reading here---and get your mom to join, too.

Sending you both best wishes, Sincerely, Vee
