It’s very important that you don’t wait until the last minute to get seen for issues that are happening to your body. Too often we as lupus warriors tend to tolerate pain more than the average healthy person, we have no other choice. Don’t just push it off as a Lupus issue that you always go through when it could be something more. If you feel something unusual, say something to your doctor. Even if you doctor gets annoyed, it’s okay, it’s your life and your health and well being at stake. The doctor will get over it. If your doctor doesn’t listen find someone else you tell and then find another doctor. You must advocate for yourself without fear or shame.
