Suggest Treatment For Lupus

I have systemic Lupus since diagnosed 1976 , mild heart regurgitation all my life, angina and inner wall chest spasm. 2 years ago a spot in my heart developed a lesion and was under attack by my lupus, heart attack followed, stint and ) other damage to my heart. No other damage. No build up in any other aread of my heart and no other blockage. The surgeon said it looked like a sudden event. now 2 years later I hd a widowmaker and I am wondering if there is any point to me taking Brillinta. The meds make me very sick and I do not think they will prolong my life. I think they may shorten it due to the stress of bleeding internally as well as nose, sinuses and stomach as well as bowels. STRESS will kill me from a lupus flare that will attack that stinted area.

Hello,

Lupus may be a mild or severe disease as per your history.

It seems that it affects heart and you are in stress. First you have to be positive, because lupus may worsen due to stress.

You can see a cardiologist to change your brillinta, as many other effective medicines available for you.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Alokkalyani
