I am a 39 yr old woman who was diagnosed with Lupus 19 yrs ago. I am currently on 10mg of Prednisone daily and 200mg Celebrax daily. I have been taking the Prednisone from day 1, needless to say I have had to have my left hip replaced. Due to the Prednisone. I have cut out all sugar and most dairy products. I exercise 5-6 days a week And I eat mostly red meat and vegetables. I have been in remission and not had a flare up for the last 7 yrs. I do not have any rashes or the butterfly rash , never had. I can go out in the sun too. I will always have to take the Prednisone at this point. I have tried not taking the Celebrax and my hands tend to ache. So I am wondering if I was misdiagnosed? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
