Need help -- Pain in right side
I have been diagnosed with Lupus since last September and am still trying to figure all of this out. I don't feel as though my Rhumy is very compassionate, as when I call to ask a question, the response is usually, "yes, that is because of Lupus" or "no, that's not due to the Lupus", and that's about it.
Yesterday at work I started having a sharp pain in my upper right abdomen and chest (felt like sever gas pains) and I popped a couple of gas x tablets. After 3 hours, the pain was still there, so I went home to lay down. In about 30 minutes the pains were not sharp; however, the pain radiated up into my neck, shoulder blade and arm (right side). Taking a deep breath was very painful and I could not even lay on my left side. I thought I was having a heart attack. This morning, my right side is a little tender, but no pain.
My question is ... does this sound like something that might be due to Lupus? Any and all comments are really welcome.
