    I actually discussed the correlation with my rheumatologist. He stated there was none. I told him I’ve received allergy shots off and on most of my life. It makes sense to me that there would be related science k

    I totally agree. I like Kim have had ongoing allergic reactions all my life. For doctors or other professionals to think otherwise is a grave mistake in helping those of us with lupus .

    My allergist (back in the 1990s) believed my fibromyalgia and lupus were directly connected to my allergies. He would give me a steroid injection (cortisone) in the hip and that would correct the various issues I had been experiencing before the injection. I.e., the steroid arrested all symptoms, from crippling pain to sneezing, itching, etc. The injection would last three months. That was in the beginning. I had to quit taking prednisone in 2003, my autoimmune system could not handle most of the meds I was on for lupus. I would say as human guinea pig, that lupus, fibromyalgia and allergies are inter-related. My rheumatologist and family doctor would agree.

    Seems to be a connection between latex allergy and lupus as well (from a large latex allergy group)

    I don’t have Lupus but I have alopecia. I truly believe my seasonal and food allergies cause it. Doctors refuse to listen to patients and further our suffering.
