So just when i feel like i am getting a handle on my lupus, my BP starts to go all crazy again.... I have Lupus Nephritis ( lupus of Kidney) my kidneys were actually at about 13% functionally when i was diagnosed with lupus in december (2013)... anyways i have been doing alot better , at least i feel alot better, sometimes i even think about having my doctor retest me for the 5th time just to make sure that i do actually have lupus... because i just really dont think their right...but whatever... the point is i am finally starting to feel ok until recently i have started to have my severe headaches and shooting pains throughout my body... and now my feet are swollen!!!! WHY DONT I HAVE CONTROL OVE MY BODY!!!!!!!. it makes me sad to think that i will have to deal with this for the rest of my life.... my doctors say that its just a flare up and soon it will pass, but i want it to go away ...NOW!!! FOREVER !!!.. am i crazy, does anyone else feel like they are losing control of their body.
