Re: More newbie questions

Hello Nick,

I appreciate what you are saying, but as I stated in my post I am talking from my own personal experience. I do actually have multi organ involvement - heart, liver, kidneys and also cns problems. I also have other problems which are are as a result of having SLE, but my main concern with this post was only to speak of my own symptoms of asthma. This is why I state I am not a medical doctor, but I always make it clear that my posts reflect only my own life and how I am affected as I have had SLE for 30+ years.

The question from Gina was about asthma though and this is what I responded to. I also have problems with pleurisy frequently, and this affects my ability to breath, but my asthma was identified as primary, and not secondary to SLE, and I wanted to share this information.

Take care.

I am not a medical doctor, I only speak from my own experience of the illnesses I discuss here.
