Are mornings difficult for you folks? When I get out of bed I walk hunched over and feel stiff, sore, and so tired. It's so hard to stand up. My joints feel like they are on fire and it takes two or three hours for my body and mind to start working normally. Today is worse than ever, but thankfully I don't have anything I have to do except go to the urologist at 3:00. I feel as though I waste so much time. I use this time to catch up with friends and the news but sometimes, like today, it's hard to get that positive attitude going.

Weekends are busy times for me because my hubby's home and our little granddaughters spend Sundays with us, and you moms with little kids know that you don't get much rest when you have an 8 & 9 year old running around needing to be fed and entertained, plus I love being with them. But boy does it wear me out. How on earth do you working moms handle this disease???

I've had to stop my Celebrex because it's chewing up my stomach, and I guess that's one of the reasons my body is complaining so much. I see my rheumy tomorrow and maybe she'll have a suggestion for me. I can't take imuran, cellcept (which I loved), or methotrexate. I'm not sure what's left.

Well, enough of this pity party. If any of you have any secret remedies, I'd love to hear them.

Blessings,

Pat

Hey Pat

I have more pain in the morning time, but not too bad.  the worst part of the day for me is afternoon and evening.  I am exhausted by bedtime most of the time.  Have some good days  like a week or so ago, I had relative little pain, and not depressed, and things felt so good for two whole days.  It was wonderful, than it started back up again. It starts with Diarrhea, and then the other stuff follows it.  The diarrhea is not as bad as when I was having a major flare, but it does return.  and it is down hill eventually. 

Mornings I do better usually.  and I do my emails then.  Sometimes the depression gets so bad that I cannot do anything much at all.  but when I have good days, the mornings are wonderful.  Evenings are tired and hurtful.

It is at night for me... Since I have stopped working, I am much better... I do have bouts of pain... The week of Christmas I was pretty bad.. I just do too much... my family was here from Oklahoma.. Our daughter graduated from college, we had two birthdays and Christmas... and we went to see the Rockettes too.. that was just too much... It took me a whole week to get over it and my brain is still not back....

I almost always do too much.  Especially in the good days.  I want to do stuff when the good days arrive so that at least I can get some stuff done.   

But it sounded like me;)  going overboard.  gettinng these things done.  Thanksgiving I was so sick and in so much pain, that I could only stay for an hour at my daughter's house.  Christmas dinner was much better than thanksgiving.  did the exact things both holidays.  cooked green beans, corn, and potato salad and took them to my daughters house.  Can't second guess this disease.

I hope you are getting some good rest, and can do better about not doing too much.

Hey girlfriend I'm right there with ya in the mornings. I get out of bed and feel like I'm wearing concrete shoes. Like someone is going to throw me in with the fishes lol. My breathing is bad in the morning too. trying to hold on to the counter and set up the coffee pot with one hand. Not a pretty sight. Today I called my home health care worker and she's coming over later because I was too wiped out for her to come over earlier. That's bad when I'm to bad off to have the person that does all the work come over.
Isn't the metho.,imuran,cellcept for the lupus like the plaquenil? You're right what else is there? I certainly can't say that I ever do anything that takes away my energy. I usually can do somthing for 30 mins and have to go set back down. blush . All though I would love to see my grandbabies from time to time. They live in Tenn. though so that won't happen.
If that is the best you can do for a pitty party you really need to work on the moaning and groaning. You're not very good at it! You need to add a couple of these cry cry . Now see doesn't that look more like a pitty party? You just need to take some tips from me. I'm a pro at whining on here.
I'm totally looking forward to seeing you so don't get too tired. Save up some energy so we can go get in trouble or somthing.
love ya

What concerns me is that this pattern is worsening. While it used to take me 30 min to an hour to get up and moving, it now takes 2 to 3 hours. I make it a point not to schedule anything in the mornings. In in a flare right now but even when I'm not flaring it's still so hard to get my joints moving in the a.m. It's much like standing up after having sat in the movies for a couple of hours. I just hope this isn't moving into anything like RA, which has been suggested many times but my blood work for RA has always been negative. Maybe it's just age, but I doubt that.

(((HUGS))))

Wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you. You may have already considered this, but have you changed what you are eating? I wouldn't wish my inability to handle most foods on anyone, but I will say that I have found a definite connection between what I eat and the severity of my symptoms. Certain foods make my joints swell up worse than ever - and getting up and about in the morning is a nightmare. Again, it's just something to consider.

Hope you find some relief soon.
Take care,
Fran

Thanks Fran. Yes I have. I got off my gluten-free diet and plan to get back on it. It made such a difference. My friend the dr. of naturopathic medicine is going to get a group together for classes on nutrition & wants us to become a support group when we're not in class. I hope she starts it this week or next. Back to gluten-free and no sugar for me. I know I'll feel better and I'll also lose more weight. Thanks for the reminder.

(((( Pat )))) oh I hope it's not RA on top of lupus, fibro, etc. Bless your heart. Mornings are always rough for me, I wait until the very last second to get out of bed and I move kinda slow. One thing that helps me is I take a muscle relaxer every night (Flexerill) it helps a lot with the morning stiffness and then of course the hot shower.

Going off the celebrex has probably caused this flare, I've been there and I hope this flare ends quickly! I have tried several different NSAIDS, couldn't take celebrex and Piroxicam is the only one that works well for me. Maybe between a new NSAIDS and flexerill or some kind of muscle relaxer would help?!?!? I don't know hun I just hope you feel better soon! You are in my thoughts and prayers.

HI Pat,

I know how you feel.  My Fibro makes a mess out of me in the mornings and at night. I used to be able to get ready in an hour, but now I need almost the entire morning to just start feeling "normal".  It's awful. I wish I had some advice for you, but I'm struggling too. We need a magic bean!

Hi All,

I used to be able to get ready in no time flat it seemed, I used to laugh at my husband because it seemed I could get ready before him most days. I have never been one to fiddle faddle around, when I have to get something done, I'm on it. I usually wear my hair short cause I don't like to have to mess with curling it and it USED to be think, so much for that these days, between the lupus and the meds I'm thinning quite fast. It's probably pay back for all the harassment I gave my husband for his recedding hair line, right? LOL. Anyway, these days I am always running late, no matter how much time I set aside for myself to get ready! Am I really getting that slow or is the clock speeding up?

(((((Pat))))) I certainly can relate about the morning and how hard it can be. My body just screams at me to stay in bed and rebels against me when I try to move around. I'm in a doozy of a flare right now and lately it's all I can do to get the kids off to school and then I come home and go back to bed. Honestly, the only thing that is helping right now are my pain meds. Even the increased prednisone isn't helping that much. I can't do NSAIDS so I take tramadol and I also have hydrocodone for times when the pain is really bad and it's the hydrocodone that helps the most and allows my body to be able to be up and do a few things around home. I know you used to have pain pills for the bad pain days, but I also know that a lot of docs don't like to prescribe them.

I hope getting back on your gluten free diet will help some, I know you felt better while you were on it. If you haven't already done it, it might be a good time to have an hones conversation with either your pcp or your rheumy to let them know just how much pain you are in. I'm sorry you are flaring. I think we need to come up with that magic bean that ginny mentioned. Take care of yourself. Lots of (((((hugs)))))

Thanks guys for your kind words. Hippi, I'm so sorry you're in a bad flare again! It seems as though you've been in a perpetual flare for about a year! Thank goodness for pain meds.

I went to my rheumy this morning and she said that of course I feel worse -- I'm not taking anything other than a small dose of prednisone and the plaquenil, which aren't enough to keep this under control. She prescribed Arava, which is a different type of immunosuppresant, and is mainly prescribe for RA patients. The lupus is really attacking my joints and she feels this will help. We'll have to monitor my liver since it's metabolized in the liver so I'm going to cross my fingers. The good news is that one of the side effects is weight loss. Both my mirror and my joints would love that!

I called my stepson, who's a pharmacist, and he sounded real pleased that she had prescribed this. Apparently it's not too well known, and causes diarrhea, plus lots of other side effects, but we all know that they all cause side effects.

I spent an hour talking to my therapist this afternoon about weight loss. We covered lots of ground and I'm motivated, so my fingers are crossed on both hands. And going gluten-free again will help my joints feel better.

Stacie, I don't think it's RA. And Ginnie, please send me some of your magic beans when you find them! I'd pay dearly for them.

Hi Patty! I know exactly what you are talking about. My mornings are the worst! They have been for three years now. I am taking Celebrex for now and it does help. Instead of two or three hours of difficulty in the morning, I have about an hour or an hour and a half. I also take plaquenil, prednisone and arava. My rhuemy also just started me on another DMARD, sulphasalazine, last week. The arava has been much more effective than methotrexate injections but, with the prednisone, I have not lost much weight. I am tapering down on the pred so I am noticing some minor weight loss just recently from the loss of water weight, I think? I do have RA and my rhuemy says that I will probably have most of my pain and inflammation in the mornings from the RA. I hope the arava works well for you and you can move better in the mornings very soon. I am not sure how long it takes for the arava to be effective so I will keep you in my prayers that it will be very soon for you!

Audrey

Audrey Ann, it's good to hear that you tolerate the arava and that it's working for you. My poor old body is so sensitive to drugs and their side effects and everything I've taken so far, with the exception of prednisone and plaquenil, has either caused a severe allergy or has caused my liver enzymes and creatinine levels to increase. Or caused stomach issues. I'd rather have pain for the rest of my life than risk liver or kidney problems.

This is the first time in years that I've not supplemented prednisone and plaquenil with a third med and boy oh boy is my body complaining. My rheumy said that sometimes people feel improvement after only one week on arava. I can't wait. This is the most pain and stiffness I've felt.

And by the way, since I'll be 60 in three months I keep reminding myself that 60 is the new 40 and we all know that 40 is young! Too young to be this crippled up.

Thanks for your prayers.

Hi :-)

You're not alone with this problem. Tough mornings seem to be common with other illnesses as well.
When the body is at deep rest a detox process happens and because we're not moving, the toxins sit until we get up and move around.

From reading your signature, you're taking a lot of medication so your liver and kidneys are being taxed and have an added job of detoxing more than usual.
You can try to drink real lemon water before bed and have a good detox program to try to make the mornings a little less painful

Peacesoul,

I'll look into a good safe way of detoxing at night. Sounds like something worth investigating. Thanks for reminding me to edit my signature. I've deleted a few of the meds as my goal is to get off as many as possible. I do worry about my liver and kidneys, as does my rheumy, who monitors my labs regularly. I had to get off cellcept because it was hurting my kidneys. I just started taking arava, which is metabolized in the liver, so she's going to monitor it frequently as well. I hope I can tolerate it because my joint pain is intense.

I've gone on a natural, gluten-free, sugar free diet, and have dropped sodas from my diet as well. I don't feel any better but have lost 7 pounds almost overnight.

Thanks for some good input.

Pat, congrats on the cleaner diet. Losing weight and having the proper food in you will help in the healing process.

You won't feel better right away when making changes because the body needs time to replenish all your cells. Don't give up on the healthier lifestyle and eating. It will pay off.

A good safe detox is drinking real lemon water. Taking milk thistle to clean out the liver. Making sure you can have 2-3 BM's a day and also you can try to take some detox baths of peroxide and epson salts. The peroxide adds oxygen to the blood (oxygen heals) and epson salts are magnesium which high levels are lost in the illness process.

These are all safe and healthy ways to detox and are not invasive.

Have you ever tried any natural therapies for the migraines?

Cranial manipulation with an osteopath or readjustment from a chiropractor are a great start. You can also try something called biofeedback.

I actually used to have migrains that would take me down. They came with the aura, then the severe pain. My Dr's told me it was this or that. My dentist told me it was TMJ. I tried everything and nothng was getting rid of them and I swear to you, once I left a bad relationship, they went away within weeks. I had them from 2002 until 2005 and have not had one since. It made me a big believer that stress is a major cause of most pain.

Not sayng this is your situation but I found my cause.

Hi Pattylatty and all-

I sympathize with the morning pain and stiffness. I seem to feel it in my hands and feet also. But there is a couple of things that I used to do when I thought I only had fibro and am now doing with with MCTD and I am getting relief. Epsom salts baths (especially in a jaccuzi tub) and FIR saunas.

I bought the sauna a few years ago but stopped using it when I read that people with Lupus shouldn't use it, but I have read statements from Lupus patients that have had good results with it. I asked my Rheumy if it would cause problems and he felt it would be a benefit, and he is right. The heat is soothing, and I'm sure it aids the detoxification. The problem with me is consistency as I need to get into a routine and commit to this for several months to see the longstanding benefits.

If there are others who have used one of these, I would love you to share you experience with them.

Hi Freename,

I love to take baths as well and use Epsom salts or other such bath salts often as well, they do soothe the muscles quite well. I am one of those that cannot tolerate the saunas or too hot of a jaccuzi though, it's unfortunate because I so enjoy them. I try every so often to see if I can overcome the issues, but everytime I get the same results, increased heart rate, immediate headache, shortness of breath, butterfly rash and just feel miserable. It makes me so mad, because I would love to be able to detox in the sauna and of course the jaccuzi feels great on the muscles and joints.

Hello Melissa

Do you mean steam saunas or far infrared saunas?- I too can't tolerate the heat or steam of a regular sauna but I keep my fir sauna below 115F and with the dry heat I have no problems with breathing or tolerence

Mornings are my best time of the day. I am up every morning by 5:30 and have the most energy then. By lunch time I am beat and can hardly drag my feet in front of the other. Most days I am lucky enough to be able to lay down and have a nap for an hour or so and that helps.
 
I wish you didn't hurt so bad in the mornings. I know everyone is different and Lupus affects us all differently. One thing for sure is it really sucks and makes us all sick.

Hi Peaceful  I an new here and have question regarding why I am nausea every morning and I run a low grade fever as well mostly in the mornings.  I read your post and I think I may have an idea now as to what is gong on..While im asleep my body detoxes and I feel very ill in the am.  Could this be possible. Like you said .."the body detoxes while at rest"..Could the toxins can fevers every morning for past 4 years.  I have fibromyalgia and sjogrens

Take Care everyone..

Isabella Reid

Thanks  I hope I wrote to the correct place
