Lupus did the same thing to me. I was DX in 2013 as well. My Rheumatologist says that the ratio of men to women with Lupus is like 10-1 so they have us out numbered by a long shot! But he says the symptoms are virtually the same. But for some reason they hit guys harder than they do women.
There is a Lupus forum on here and while there are only a handful of us on there you are more than welcome to chime in anytime. And there have been quite a few people on there that have helped me a ton! So you are welcome to chime in or ask about anything on that forum as well. And it's great to stay positive!!!
