This year got away from me. One big blur. I started smoking cigarettes again after quitting for 18yrs. I quit again, but not without repercussions. Tobacco is a nightshade plant.Some folks with lupus are very sensitive to nightshade vegetables(plants). That didn't go over so well. Have pain in my joints ( normal), but a more intense and problematic pain in my finger that won't go away. Sounds familiar ( please not the headache thing all over again!). I started methotrexate last week. Not a fan as of yet. Needed someone to talk to. It feel like complaining when I talk to family and friends. They don't understand anyway, so what's the point. A bit groggy so going to stop here. Thanks for reading.
