I'm talking beet red skin peeled off, burn. On my left cheekbone about the size of a quarter. It hurts. Just like when you burn your hand on the oven, edges where the skin is grey where the skin peeled off. I left a message at the Drs office earlier about my pain level and they never called back. Big surprise there. And I finally fell asleep for a couple hours and woke up with this. :(

Oh no.. that's not good at all.. do you still have those cherry spots on your chest too? Any other "burns"? You may need to go to the ER to find out what is going on with you.. hang in there and let us know what happens..

Thanks Ducky. Right now I feel like a total freak of nature.
The burn feels better now after I put vaseline and a bandaid over it. I look like I been in a fight, lol.
My pain in my arms is awful tonight. 10 mg 2 x a day of Oxy ER is not cutting it. And my legs have been hurting and I have a headache too.
I have that abdominale ultrasound in the morning and will insist on seeing the Dr after it. I'm getting mad. :(

Dr is clueless.
I asked for a refferal to a rheummy. I've had it with him. :(
