    Hi Ali,

    I'm 16w and I also have lupus. I'm so sorry to hear you're having a horrible time. I felt pretty average with MS for the first 13 weeks but to be honest I feel better than I have in ages at this point. Are you taking medication? Have you got a good immunologist or rheumatologist managing your lupus? I still take my regular meds on advice from my doctors, and I think they have helped me.

    Here if you need a vent or just a general chat xxx

    Im on 5mg prednislone. I don't have many symptoms luckily just tiredness, mild arthritis and a mostly mild face rash that comes and goes but is very red at the moment made worse by hormones and acne break out! I have good specialists who i see every 3 months

    Hey Ali! Just wanted to see how you're going with your lupus? I'm 30 weeks now and staring to feel a lot of inflammatory hip pain and the fatigue is hard!! Just want to get past 34 weeks and I'll be happy. How are you??
