My best friend was diagnosed with Lupu, or better put Fibromyalgia, about two months ago. Best information I can give you is to do your research and talk to your doctor. I know that UV rays aren't good and can cause a flare-up so stay out of the sun as much as possible, for some certain foods can trigger a flare-up or certain environments.
I learned a lot from this site, :-( if you have this I am sorry, it's for life and there are certain spectrum's of it meaning some have it more severe than others. My friend has minor liver problems but is not a severe case.
Also, I'd do a search on cafemom to see if there's any groups for those with Lupus given it does effect woman in their mid-twenties and up the most. Good Luck hun!
