Hi. I was just diagnosed with SLE between chemo and radiation and have now started on Zometa for the next 5 years. Found this group and thought it might help me understand the side effects and how it affects SLE.
Hi, I am not sure if it is ok to be on this group,I have some sense of taste, but what I do taste, does not taste like it should. I am on Plaquenil, I have Lupusl, Sjrogens, Raynauds, and RA. Does anyone have any ideas if this is temporary , or not. Thanks
