What is a lupus flare?

 

LFA Flare DefinitionI’ve always wondered this myself. I know what it entails for me … when I start feeling a certain way, I just know what’s going on. So off to the rheumy I go and blood work is drawn and “lupus activity is high.”

Whatever that means, right?!
I know how I feel, but I don’t have a clue whats REALLY going on inside my body…

Well, the Lupus Foundation of America has been working on this issue.
The email I received today tells all about it. Many of you probably have the same information in your mailbox, but did you click the link and read it? You should.

But here it is, just to make it that much easier::

Lupus Foundation of America Achieves International Consensus on Definition of a Lupus Flare

(it really doesn’t say anything more than what I just did, but it’s leading to good things. and that’s what counts. that’s what we advocates are after, right?! so yay!)

p.s. my draft just saved at 5:55:55 — strange….
