Examine your diet. Many cases of lupus, MS, fibromyalgia, etc. are reactions to a poison like nutrasweet. My own daughter had lupus like symptoms, (went to the Dr., put on prednisone etc.) but we stopped the diet cokes, and the symptoms are gone. I can't post it, I don't think, but do a search for George Malkmus, and read the many testimonials about diseases cured with a more natural diet, and supplements like Barley Green. That stuff is wonderful. I take it from time to time for general nutrition.
