... Hi! They call my rash the "malar" rash too, but it seems so much more severe than that. The last time I was admitted into the hospital (about 9 weeks ago) with a severe flare, I saw 14 different doctors (from all kinds of fields) in 3 days. I go to a learning hospital, so everyone brought one or two students with them. I felt like a science project. Annnyways.... My rash is... (5 replies)

... Hello everyone, I am having kind of a wierd problem: when I try to sleep at night I can never get a really "deep" sleep and usually keep waking up every couple of hours during the night. As a result, I wake up in the morning feeling exhausted and have no energy all day. I really cant figure what is causing this or how to cope with it, this started back when my lupus... (1 replies)

... Dear Jane, Welcome! I'm not sure what all might be causing your rashes---I'm not a dr., to say the least! I did do a lot of browsing, doctoring, biopsies, etc. before finally being Dx'ed with the SCLE "subset" in 2000. Anyway, might you & your doctor see a correlation to the drugs you now take? e.g., steroids may make a person more prone to infections, both fungal &... (4 replies)

... Hi I have had two lots of pulses of cyclophosphamide, 2002 and 2003, it really helped me and side effects were not as horrendous as I imagined. If you would like to know details of how I felt just post in reply and I will get back to you. :wave: xxhazel (5 replies)
... Hiya, Yes, I was on cyclophosphomide treatment about 10 years ago. I had very large continuous doses not pulses, so I had lots of sickness. I do have lupus but mine wasn't for this. Others though who have pulses do report that it wasn't too bad (sickness wise) so maybe somebody may answer who has had it for lupus treatment. Hope you are able to find out what it is... (5 replies)
