I was just diagnosed recently with Lupus and have some symptoms that I am not sure are Lupus related. I have bruises on my back that are small in size and have been there for some time, over 8 months, and I read online an article saying that is one of the symptoms. Does anyone know for sure about the bruises and will they ever go away? Also I was told by my Optomitrist that Plaquinil may raise the pressure in my eyes and I already have glaucoma and I am concerned about this possible side effect. Please respond about the medicine if you have heard or had this problem with your eye pressure. I also had an incident a few months ago where my entire face became beet red for no reason and stayed that way for at least 2 days. I had not been diagnosed with Lupus when this happened. I was curious if the redness would be related to Lupus only not the rash.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
