I am a 60 yr old Caucasian woman.I was Rxs w/Lupus(SLE)Nov 97,I've had many health problems since,including 2 TIA's,thyroid,gall bladder surgery,large lumps on lymph node near thyroid(were removed by surgery)& multiple other problems, including severe facial rash & sensitivity to sun & florescent lighting.FYI, unrelated I'm sure I had Uterurn Cancer in 04/91.I take many Meds for my SLE & TIA's but I've been feeling quite well for a almost a yr now.My question is: there are lumps growing just under the skin(some the size of a small lime)many on my arms,legs,buttocks on my mid section near the liver & a large one just at my pubic area.I have showed my General Dr & he doesn't seem concerned.But recently more have appeared & are painful.I met another woman yesterday who too,has SLE, she is in her early 40's.She had no idea that I was suffering w/these lumps,but she told me she had just started getting the same kind of lumps. Is this a Lupus related problem?
