Yes. Sle, (systemic lupus erythematosus), an autoimmune disorder causes multiple symptoms because its inflammation attacks multiple organs in the body - skin, joints, kidneys & blood vessels. It can be very severe and even disfiguring & treatment can be quite toxic. This severity often leads to depression, the most common emotional response to sle. Treating depression helps improve outcome in sle.

I've been depressed for the past 2 weeks (not the first time), have racing thoughts, chest pain, muscle spasms and sleeping troubles. Is this anxiety?

See your pcp. to get checked for chest pain, muscle spasms. Can only say it's from anxiety after medical evaluation has ruled out physical causes. Tell your doctor how you've been feeling, include any meds you take, any alcohol/drug/tobacco use. Ask for referral to a mental health professional if all points to psychological issues. Good you've asked for help here. Hope you feel better soon. Read more...

Hang on! Smoke-free for 2 weeks - that is AWESOME! Quitting smoking is probably the single best thing you could ever do for your health.

Try taking some Claritin (loratadine) for the itching during the day and benedryl at night. See your doctor if the depression gets worse. Congrats!!! Read more...
