Hey @Zanne does your doctor have you on antimalarials for your Lupus?

I decided to give the AIP a chance and my symptoms started to improve so I ditched my docs. Now I'm in a new state so if things get bad again, I suppose I will have to start over. But honestly, I really do not want to take any steroids or antimalarial drugs.

That said, I do worry that there is still inflammation going on in my body, just at a lower level, but it is still causing damage that I won't notice until it's much worse.

For example, when I'm under stress, my Sjogren's symptoms really flare up. My mouth gets soooo dry and my eyes are bloodshot. I ache all over and feel a general fatigue. The ringing in my ears gets louder. If it's really bad stress, my legs jump. Slowly the symptoms will subside as I return to the AIP and/or get an abundance of rest.
Yea, I was switched from Plaquenil because it seriously messed with my digestion. I pick up the new one soon. Just didn't know if you had any luck with them. I'm not a big fan of drugs myself.

And yesterday they took a ton of blood from me and I noticed they had a full Sjorgrens panel on there in addition to Lyme and all the ones he did before. I go back in July. I had a picture of a marlar rash on my face for him this time and he agreed that I am leaning more and more into full blown Lupus diagnosis.
