usually when i have a flare , it does start with a fever that gets worse..i get hot and cold chills.i feel like i have the flu.. It is good that you already have an appt set up .. the best thing to do is to notify your doctor RIGHT AWAY when anything like that happenes
i hope that you feel better
i Donna and Keo, welcome you both to the group! Donna usually when people first come here I tell them they should take their temp about 4 times a day and write it down and give it to their rheumy. Of course it could be from somthing else but it can easily be a symptom of a flare. Like Keo mentioned you start to feel like you got the flu really bad. I'm glad you got a rheumy appt tomorrow hopefully they will have some answers for you. I actually ran a low grade fever for about 6 months until the plaquenil they put me on started working.
Hey like I said
