Welcome to the WebMD Lupus Community! Please don't respond to this discussion. Instead, please read before you start your own new discussion. Here are a few tips to get the best response when asking about your lupus symptoms and concerns.

  • If you have a question, please post it as a new discussion...being specific in your title as to your subject matter.
  • We have a wonderful rheumatologist volunteering his time with us. Dr. Venuturupalli checks the community weekly and I also send him questions for his consideration. Please understand, Dr. V is unable to diagnose or offer second opinions. Referring to problems with other physicians or asking questions that may contradict another professional's opinion can not be addressed.
  • Without examining a patient himself, there is no way Dr. V could give an accurate opinion, but he can provide tips on what may help, or what questions you should ask your doctor.
  • Please check the date of discussions when replying. Some of the discussions you see, especially in the right hand column, are very popular but also very old. The original poster may not be following the discussion. So, please post your questions as NEW discussions rather than posting to a very old one. We don't want questions to get overlooked.
  • Please do not post in all caps. It is difficult to read and viewed as "shouting" in community forums and discussions.
  • When posting long discussions break into paragraphs. It is difficult to follow large blocks of print, so please break up your discussions into small paragraphs.

Thank you for reading!
