Thrush & Lupus?

Hi everyone,

I wrote a few months ago about my Rheumie that doubted my lupus. We had a long talk where he finally listened to me. It turns out he didn't have all of my medical records. I quit taking my Plaquenil and flared up big time. I kept a daily diary and gave it to him. He believes me now.

At any rate, I seem to have developed Thrush while changing meds. It seems that steroids can cause this. Is this common with anyone else with SLE? I feel crazy since this is a baby disease. I also feel like I am getting Pneumonia again. I don't know if they are related. I had Thrush during my last flare too. I just had to laugh when I figured this out.

Mary Kay

Re: Thrush & Lupus?

Thrush is common for anyone who uses steroids.
