DM and back pain
I was diagnoised 5 year ago with skin form of Lupus. After several years of problems and my hands kept getting worse I was sent to a dermatologist who specailized in Lupus. After one look at my nails and rash on chest, he said it was not Lupus but DM. I had to do research on Internet to find information. Not a lot in print.
I have several tests to make sure there were no tumors (and there weren't); however, I have been having trouble with my tailbone and hip. They say it is probably inflammation and have given me steroids which help for a while, but then it returns. I work on a computer all day and by the end of the day it hurts so back I can't stand it. I just had an MRI to see if it is disc related, but have not gotten the results back yet.
I also have a problem that I have happen every now and then. I start having a lot of fatigue and then I loose my appetite. There are times I can't even stand to smell food. I am not a big person and this is not a good thing.
Anybody else have any of these problems?
