I have recently been diagnosed with a rare auto immune disease called Lupus. Was wondering if anybody knows how much DSA you are entitled to with a disease like lupus?

You don't get any money with DSA. You get equipment and expenses based on your study needs.

The support you receive through DSA depends on your study needs. It's difficult to say what you will get, as I (and I assume everyone else including the few DSA Assessors registered on the site) don't know you personally and how the condition affects you. This can only be determined by a DSA assessor following a Needs Assessment.
What I do know is that symptoms change from person to person, as does the severity of symptoms, so that makes it even more difficult to comment on and make any predictions.
