It started with low immune function getting worse after pregnancies, pregnancies revealed my platelet issues. When I got the flu I ended up in the hospital. First it was swelling in my feet, and knees now it is moving to my hands and wrists. I just try and stay uber healthy, take Tylenol and daily Aleve and ward off low grade fevers and get more sleep than most people. My newest affliction seems to be mouth sores-sucks. Pretty sure the Lupus is in my blood.
