What can I expect?
I've been suffering with RA for years now, and three weeks ago I heard that I now have Lupus.
This is a bit confusing...can you actually have both? According to some research you can. My question: What's next? I do not have a clue what I am in for...this scares me. RA I can deal with, I know exactly when a flair is starting up and how to get back on my feet within a couple of days.
But two auto-immune diseases? How on earth do one cope with this monster? The lupus already effected my kidneys/bladder and the dr. told me that I can be sure that lupus will effect the bladder/kidneys from time to time.. Is this true?
I will appreciate any info/input on this subject.
