Question: I have a question for any legal eagles out there, A month ago I had this accident ( non-auto ) and I am about 14 yrs post op from c-spine & lumbar w/some hardware. Within those 14 or so years I have done pretty good, About the only pain I had was caused from weather changes, or over doing things, and then some ice and relaxation, motrin did well. I also have whats called "mild lupus ". Next thing I know, I have this accident ( non-auto related ) and I am in this huge pain cloud. The accident was so hard I was fortunate not to have broken my leg or anything else. I have deep bone contusions ( whatever that is ) and I am in a wheelchair/walker. Life has come to a standstill from what it was before. PT has temporary help, but I keep at it. I push myself from sun up to sunset and I don't know if it's true or not but I am being told now that the lupus has probably flared and is causing the pain to be more widespread. Since I was doing pretty independent,, and for all standards things were under control, and now my life is upside down, I know a lot of the pain is from the accident, but can something like this cause lupus to blow up ? And if so, does this ruin any chance at recovery from the insurance company for the neglect that caused my injury ? I am so angry, and now I have what they call panic problems ( which is new ). Am I just a lost cause, which is unfair because prior to this I worked so hard to make a comeback,.and I am so frigging angry. Any feedback ?

I would say that the accident has caused your lupus to flare. Lupus seems to react to any 'trauma' from a simple cold to even an accident or surgery. It's highly likely that it will settle down again but obviously there's no saying how long that will take. If you haven't already, I would see your specialist to see if they can increase or change your medication to give you some relief as that's what they'd usually do when you're in a flare. It's very difficult to separate lupus pain from pain caused by something else, usually changing/upping medication gives you a clue as to how much of the pain is lupus related, if the change in medication helps, it's likely to be lupus related. I know you must be angry but as I'm sure you know negative thoughts/moods also impact on your lupus often making it worse, so please go to your specialist to see if they can help with the pain and try and let the anger go, it's difficult I know but do try. Good luck

The cause of lupus is not known. Researchers believe that there is a genetic predisposition to autoimmnune diseases like lupus. Researchers also believe that certain things like stress, viruses, sunlight, birth control pillsand other medications, can trigger lupus in susceptible individuals. Call or write your senators and congress persons asking them to support the Lupus REACH Amendment to find the cause and the cure. Go to the link provided and click on TAKE ACTION.

My sister is a carrier but does not exhibit any of the symptoms. She found out when she went through in-vitro pregnancy. She had to have the boys tested after they were born.
