Nearly all the questions I have asked in the past have finally led to a diagnosis of Systemic Lupus. It's been working VERY slowly in my body over the course of 7 years or more with some isolated symptoms here and there, and now I have many of the classic symptoms and my blood work finally confirms it. Over the last two years, my platelets have been lower than usual, then within the last few months, discoid lesions, fatique, lower hemoglobin set in. I've been told that protein is being spilled into my urine, but otherwise my kidneys are functioning properly for the time being. My doctor may put me on Cellcept to avoid further damage. I've just started Plaquenil. I've done some research on Cellcept, but would like to know of others and their experience, particularly side effects. Thank you.
