With discoid lupus you can have arthritis symptoms such as sore joints, the skin lesions can happen all over your body, itching skin, headaches, fatigue that just doesn't go away.
Only about a 20% chance of discoid turning into systemic---it is pretty rare for this to happen.
You are probably allergic to everything--soap, makeup, colognes and perfumes, clothing, just everything. You need to stay out of the sun and I don't know about you but I am allergic to every sun screen I have ever tried. A lot of the symptoms for systemic can be experienced by discoid.
Contact the site for The Lupus Foundationa of America for really good information at:
www.lupus.org/topics/lupus/
I wish you best wishes and good luck. If you would like to correspond with a person like yourself and a nurse too just e mail me. I always need new friends. Tina Ellenburg tina@amaonline.com
