Hi, everyone. I’m Jenifer and only 22 years old. Recently, I’ve experienced fatigue all the time and knee pain; especially, I feel exhausted in the morning and can’t stand up. Actually, I often take 10-15 minutes to stand and move around my room. Fever sometimes occurs in the evening. These make me can’t concentrate my studying. I think I’m having some initial lupus symptoms since my grandmother has it. But my doctor told me she needed more time to give me the right diagnosis. Too worried about that. I’m trying to do gentle exercises. What should I do next? Can someone give me more advice?

Thank you so much!

    Hi jenifer1303

    It is a bit early to say whether you have lupus you are not presenting with usual Lupus symptoms at the moment. In the meantime make sure you are eating a healthy diet and ask your doc to check your vits and minerals especially iron and B12 which if low can make you feel exhausted which can interfere with your studies.....my very best wishes to you ..

      Hi, lilian05079

      I'm so happy to see your useful advice. I asked my doctor about diet to reduce fatigue and knee pain in the morning. As you said, she recommended me to add more vitamin B12 and iron like shrimp, yogurt, soymilk, lentils, spinach and sardines. She also encouraged me to boost my health by adding omega 3s foods, such as salmon, tuna, flaxseed and mackerel. But you know? I don’t like eating fish and meat, I only like eating vegetables and fruits. I wonder whether my sysmtpoms can be relieved without fish and meat or not. Can you help me more? 

      Thank you very much!

      If you don't eat meat and fish go to pharmacy or supermarket and get B12 Complex Supplements and take each day. Also, get Omega 3 Supplements also from the pharmacy or supermarket and take both B12 and Omega 3 supplements each day. You should feel some improvement over time...my very best wishes to you jenifer1303....

      To supplement your iron intake eat plenty of leafy green veg, lettuce, cabbage, brocolli, sprouts, kale, spinach. Also, you can get Iron Supplements fron supermarket or pharmacy and take each day....best wishes..

      Supplement- that’s a good idea! Why I don’t think about it. Thank you so much. I just search information in the internet. A lots of useful supplements and information are given. But, some Iron Supplement have side effects and risks. I wanna make sure that supplements don’t cause side effects on my body as I know my immune system is weak now.  Have you ever taken this supplement?

      Hi jenifer1303

      Yes i have taken iron supplements but always iron and multivits together in the pack. So there has been a recommended daily dose of the iron and vitamins in the pack so that you are not taking too much. You may get B12 Complex which might also contain iron check the pack or speak with pharmacist. If you eat lots of green leafy veggies and fruit you have no need for multivitamins. If you do take iron supplements they can cause constipation but if you are eating lots of veg and fruit and drinking lots of water that should help with constipation.

      I would recommend taking B12 Complex check if they have iron with them. If not take a low iron supplement for now and see if things improve over time...my very best wishes to you jenifer1303....

      Hi, lilian05079

      Thanks for your reply. I’ll consider B12 Complex Supplement for my symptoms. I wanna reduce my fatigue and knee pain as fast as possible. They make me stress. Should I recommend it to my grandmother who has lupus? She has taken LupuFree and the disease is reduced a little. Can I recommend this supplement to boost her health?

      It would be unwise to recommend any alternative medication for your grandmother unless it is approved by her doctor or rheumatologist. If they approve then that is fine, but check with them first...my very best wishes to you and your grandmother..😊

      Yep, many thanks. My grandmother has taken lupufree approved her doctor, I think it’s good to let her take it. For me, I take B12 complex supplement to reduce fatigue after checking this product carefully. Next month, my doctor is gonna give me the right diagnosis, I hope everything will be fine!
