I'm scared, and I dont normally get scared, but I was recently diagnosed with lupus. The dr has put me on hydroxychloroquine and said I may need chemotherapy but he is trying this to see how I do and he is retesting in 6 weeks. This is a new dr to me as I recently moved, so I called my old rheumatalogist in Wisconsin who I just adore and he told me he has suspected lupus for over a year but I hadn't tested positive for it when he ordered that test last year and he totally supports this dr's treatment at this point-he offered to review my results so I am picking up copies of my bloodwork and faxing them Tuesday to him. I dont know anyone that has lupus. I've checked out webmd and the arthritis foundation website, but what I am looking for is real information from real people so I thought I'd see if anyone here has it or is close to someone who has it, if anyone could recommend a good website, any information would be really appreciated.
