So....I took the ibuprofen as suggested by the MD last night before I went to bed which helped with my pain.
However, I woke up this morning feeling like I was run over by a truck!!
I couldn't pull myself out of bed until about 15 minutes ago.  I am achy and tired and have absolutely no appetite.  I had to force myself to eat something in order to take my meds.
 
Is it possible to flare after sun exposure a week ago?  And is it possible to flare even on the meds that are supposed to make it better?  I wish I knew more about lupus and UCTD...I feel so uneducated about it even though I've read the books....I hate feeling like I still don't know enough about what's going on...
 
I am kicking myself for having a good time last weekend and for picking up an extra 12 hour shift at the hospital last week.  I was feeling so well though and so happy to be feeling well.
 
I know it seems like all I'm doing is ranting....but I'm just so FRUSTRATED!!
 
If this is a flare, should I be watching for other things to be involved and watching out for other symptoms?
 
sigh....

Hey all,

With "continuation" posts such as this, please post in the original thread. We steadily have new members join and they won't be able to get any help if the topic is too spread out -- it's hard to locate whatever threads may contain the original info, and they won't even know how to start looking!

Your moderators thank you!
