    Why do I sweat profusely during the day and at night. I am a 68 year old female, well past menopause.?

    I have had this problem for several years and it gets worse every year. None of my doctors has an answer or they just kind of blow me off.. I am beyond frustrated.

    1. Supermodelmommy

      Our ability to sweat is a part of the function of the autonomic nervous system. There could be a problem with your thyroid, autonomic dysfunction such as a systemic illness like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus.

      Sweating profusely can also be a side effect of some cancers. I don’t want to scare you but it does cause concern and should be checked up.

    My son was diagnosed with lupus. Does anyone have advise for what I can do to help him?
    He was diagnosed when he was 16 and had what he thought was a pimple under his ear. He also lost hair on top his head the size of a dime. He is 23 now, is doing about the same. I worry because he is not under a doctors care for the lupus. I know it is not just going away on its own. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

    1. JustMe

      Here are some all-natural supplements that you might want to consider.

      GLA Complex: nature’s steroid – VERY IMPORTANT FOR LUPUS.

      Vita-C: antioxidant; also anti-inflammatory

      B-Complex: strengthens glandular functions; reduces malabsorption; nourishes nervous system

      Alfalfa Complex: anti-inflammatory; strengthens kidneys (alfalfa leaf powder tablets…NOT SPROUTS)

      Zinc: protects skin and organs; promotes healing

      Garlic Complex: immune system enhancer; protects enzyme systems

      Hope this is helpful and feel free to contact me with questions or for the brand I suggest.

    I’m currently 15, and my father won’t get me tested for lupus even though my mother has it. I show signs of Lupus, and my mother wants to get me tested (my parents are divorced) what should I do? How can I get these tests done, just to be sure, without my fathers consent? Is there anyway?
    I have no “doctor”, and i have these symptoms:
    Painful or swollen joints and muscle pain
    Unexplained fever
    Red rashes, most commonly on the face
    Chest pain upon deep breathing

      Hypersplenism/ Enlarged spleen
      Hypersplenism is a type of disorder which causes the spleen to rapidly and prematurely destroy blood cells.

      Causes & symptoms
      Hypersplenism may be caused by a variety of disorders. Sometimes, it is brought on by a problem within the spleen itself and is referred to as primary hypersplenism. Secondary hypersplenism results from another disease such as chronic malaria, rheumatoid arthritis, tuberculosis, or polycythemia vera, a blood disorder.

      Symptoms of hypersplenism include easy bruising, easy contracting of bacterial diseases, fever, weakness, heart palpitations, and ulcerations of the mouth, legs and feet. Individuals may also bleed unexpectedly and heavily from the nose or other mucous membranes, and from the gastrointestinal or urinary tracts. Most patients will develop an enlarged spleen, anemia, leukopenia, or abnormally low white blood cell counts, or thrombocytopenia, a deficiency of circulating platelets in the blood. Other symptoms may be presents that reflect the underlying disease that has caused hypersplenism.

      An enlarged spleen is one of the symptoms of Malaria, Cirrhosis of the liver, leukaemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, polycythaemia, etc. Spleen enlarges when called on to remove massive numbers of red blood cells, defective cells, or bacteria from circulation. Splenomegaly occurs in about 10% of systemic lupus erythematosus patients. Sometimes, it is caused by recent viral infection, such as mononucleosis.

    What is the difference between Lupus affecting the nervous system and MS?
    What symptoms are different for each? How are they different and how are they the same? How common is it to have Lupus (SLE) and a neurological disorder such as MS?

    1. Linda R

      Both lupus and multiple sclerosis are autoimmune disease in which the immune system goes haywire and attacks healthy parts of the self.

      In multiple sclerosis, the immune system destroys the myelin sheath or fatty covering of the nerves. This can result in loss of transmission of signals.

      In lupus, neurological symptoms can include things like seizures and neuropathy, or nerve pain. The mechanism by which lupus causes these things is not the same as in MS.

    Does any know anything about central nervous system Lupus?
    I have an 18 year old daughter was diagnosed with Lupus 2 1/2 years ago. Her family doctor has been treating the pain with medication. She recently had an episode where she passed out for nearly an hour. Her neurologist said something about central nervous system lupus. How serious is this type apart from the muscular-skeletal lupus? She hides her pain really well. She has been homebound from school because of her pain for the past 2 semesters. What kind of treatment is available for my baby?

    1. Linda R

      Lupus can indeed affect the central nervous system. It is also important to make sure her passing out was a nervous system issue and not one of the lupus clotting disorders (antiphospholipid antibody syndrome).

      If she is not under the care of a rheumatologist, please consider that. Most family doctors are not trained in the nuances and dangers of lupus. The neurologist, rheumatologist and family doctor need to be on the same page. That is not likely to happen unless you or your daughter take charge and make sure that ALL of her doctors have ALL of the information.

      Some lupus patients also suffer from neuropathy. It sounds like your daughter might benefit by a thorough work up with a few specialists.

      Best wishes.

    What are 3 diseases associated with the immune system?
    I know AIDS and Leukemia are two immune diseases or disorders (i’m sot sure what the proper word here is) but any other diseases would be helpful.

    1. supergirl883

      Off the top of my head, I can think of a few autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s disease (attacks the gut), Multiple Sclerosis (affects the central nervous system), lupus (affects multiple organs), rheumatoid arthritis (primarily affects joints).

      Allergies and asthma are also disorders associated with the immune system.

      HIV progresses to AIDS.

  8. Debi

    Anyone know a web site with good detailed Lupus information?
    I have central nervous system involvement and now possibly brain.
    I noticed one of the answers recommended echinacea. I was told by my rheumy that it will exacerbate my symptoms

    1. Natural Healer

      Hi Debi

      Here is some info you wont find on any of those sites.

      Food allergies (there is a 100 percent correlation between lupus and food allergies), rheumatoid arthritis, other connective tissue diseases, parasites, candidiasis, bowel problems, and digestive enzyme deficiencies can create symptoms that mimic or exacerbate SLE. Migraines, epilepsy, and psychoses must also be ruled out before a proper course of treatment can be decided upon.

      Both forms of lupus primarily strike young women (90% of cases) and young children.

      The drugs hydralazine, procainamide, and beta blockers can cause false-positive readings of SLE, and can also produce a lupus-like condition that disappears when the drugs are no longer taken. Birth control pills and environmental stresses can also exacerbate lupus symptoms.


      Natural Cures

      Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet. Also avoid overeating and limit your intake of dairy, beef products, and polyunsaturated oils. Also screen for food allergies and avoid all foods to which you are allergic or sensitive. Increase your intake of vegetables, especially green, yellow, and orange, and consume non-farm-raised fish several times a week.

      Herbs: Supplementation with Swedish bitters with each meal can increase hydrochloric acid production. Also drink an infusion of nettle twice a day. Other useful herbs include echinacea, goldenseal, licorice, pau d`arco, and red clover

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment. I suggest several at-home hydrotherapy treatments.

      Hyperthermia: Hyperthermia involves artificially creating fever in the body for the purpose of boosting immune function. Hyperthermia can be a highly effective method of eliminating toxins and heavy metals, as well as infectious bacteria and viruses that cannot survive in elevated body temperatures. I suggest several at-home hyperthermia treatments.

      *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy or hyperthermia treatment. Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

      Juice Therapy: Drink the juice of carrot, celery, flaxseed oil, black currant oil, and garlic.

      Nutritional Supplementation: Hydrochloric acid (HCL) deficiency is common in people with lupus, therefore HCL supplements with each meal is advised. Other useful nutrients include vitamin A with beta carotene, vitamin C and bioflavonoids, vitamin B complex, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, essential fatty acids, proteolytic enzymes taken away from meals, digestive enzymes taken with meals, and the amino acids L-cysteine, L-methionine, and L-cystine.

      Topical Treatment: PABA cream applied topically can help ease symptoms.

      Alternative Professional Care
      If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating Lupus: Acupuncture, Biofeedback Training, Bodywork, Cell Therapy, Chelation Therapy, Detoxification Therapy, Environmental Medicine, Enzyme Therapy, Guided Imagery, Homeopathy, Juice Therapy, Light Therapy, Magnetic Field Therapy, Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Oxygen Therapy, Qigong, Rolfing, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

      Best of health to you

    Do you know someone with Systemic Lupus?
    Lupus is an auto-immune disease that causes inflammation throughout the body. Your own immune system attacks your internal organs such as kidneys, liver, heart, lungs, and central nervous system. It also attacks your joints causing arthritis like pain. Other symptoms include butterfly shaped rash covering the cheeks and nose, hair loss, extreme fatigue, anemia or blood clotting issues, pleurisy, and ulceration in the nose and mouth.

    How do autoimmune disease affect fertility and pregnancy?
    I would like to start trying for a baby next year. I have chronic erticaria and raynauds, and I have been tested for lupus twice and recieved a low positive result. I am really worried.

    1. .

      Systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus) may appear for the first time, worsen, or become less severe during pregnancy. How a pregnancy affects the course of lupus cannot be predicted, but the most common time for flare-ups is immediately after delivery.

      Women who develop lupus often have a history of repeated miscarriages, fetuses that do not grow as much as expected, and preterm delivery. If women have complications due to lupus (such as kidney damage or high blood pressure), the risk of death for the fetus or newborn is increased.

      In pregnant women, lupus antibodies may cross the placenta to the fetus. As a result, the fetus may have a very slow heart rate, anemia, a low platelet count, or a low white blood cell count. However, these antibodies gradually disappear over several weeks after the baby is born, and the problems they cause resolve except for the slow heart rate.

      Autoimmune Disorders: The abnormal antibodies produced in autoimmune disorders can cross the placenta and cause problems in the fetus. Miscariage often happen in 1st and 2nd trimester of pregnancy. Pregnancy affects different autoimmune disorders in different ways.

      Raynaud’s comes in two forms. One is Raynaud’s disease, which occurs in isolation. The other is Raynaud’s phenomenon, which occurs in conjunction with other diseases, including scleroderma, a hardening and shrinking of the skin; lupus, a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the skin, joints, kidneys, nervous system and mucous membranes; and rheumatoid arthritis. Raynaud’s phenomenon also commonly occurs in people who use vibrating or hammering tools or instruments
      It’s not known why more women than men have Raynaud’s, but women get autoimmune diseases such as scleroderma and lupus more than men do, and Raynaud’s often develops with these.

      Pregnancy often aggravating urticaria.

      Your condition is very complicated.But there are many worst condition. Baby are worthed, every women ready to sacrifice almost everything to have baby. You might need ask your family to support you, get as many information as you can, and very important to cooperate with your physicians. Select them carefully. We want you and your future babies to be safe.

      Best wishes.

      marijuana and hemp are different varieties of the same species of plant, Cannabis sativa L. There are different varieties of Cannabis, just as Chihuahuas and wolves are different breeds of Canis lupus. They are scientifically different and cultivated in different ways.
      Marijuana is the flowering tops and leaves of psychoactive varieties of Cannabis that are grown for their high THC content.
      It is used legally in some states, excluding Wisconsin, for medical reasons, and is used for recreational purposes as an illegal drug.

      Unlike hemp, marijuana has a high THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) content and a low CBD (cannabidiol) content. CBD blocks the psychoactive effect of THC in the nervous system. That means in all plants in the Cannabis family, there is a chemical that will induce a psychoactive effect and another that will block it. The illegal drug is cultivated to have a THC content of anywhere from 3 percent to 22 percent. The ratio of CBD to THC is less than one.

      Hemp, or industrial hemp, is a cultivated, low-THC variety of Cannabis. It is grown for its seeds, oil and fiber.

      Industrial hemp has a low THC content compared to its CBD content. THC is typically less than 1 percent. Certified varieties in Canada and Europe are bred with the THC level purposefully decreased to less than .3 percent, the same THC level under recommendation if hemp farming is legalized in Wisconsin.

      Ditch weed is hemp found growing in the wild, usually near places where it was once cultivated. It has a low THC level.

    What disease(s) affect both the Respiratory System and the Nervous System?
    I am trying to answer a couple of questions for my A+P class…I am looking for any disease that affects both the respiratory system and the nervous system.

    1. vadtrav

      SLE otherwise known as lupus is a good answer. Additionally, you may think of chronic wasting and progressive neurological disorders i.e. ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) or Lou Gehrigs disease et al. As well, HIV infection can have serious (if not fatal) pulmonary and neurologic sequelae. I am sure there are others.
