Re: Is chronic pain something that is experienced?

hi jj - sorry you are in pain. meds can help manage ... bless the meds!
GW offered sound advice - if youv'e read the sticky posts and feel like you might have lupus then i'd suggest seek medical counsel - you need a good rheumatologist ... your pcp/primary or any specialist (a doctor you trust) should be able to give you a referal.
PS: there are 11 criteria (bloodwork is just one ... i think) and you need to have at least 4 (not necessarily at the same time)
Hope you get your answers!
