My BIL has recently been diagnosed with Lupus. He believes it is due to an antibiotic he took over a year ago. His doctors (huge shocker) don't think so, and I actually don't either. Everything I've read about drug-induced Lupus states that the symptoms appear immediately and resolve within weeks of stopping the drug. I'm more apt to think this is a vaccine reaction but I can't find any information. Has anyone ever heard of this happening? He is definitely one to receive flu shots, which I understand are not live, but isn't the flu "mist" live? I don't know...I have terrible preggo brain and exhaustion...maybe that's why my searches are yielding nothing. Can anyone help?? Thank you in advance, I don't know what I'd do without this forum!
