Thanks Jeannie, I'm sorry you have been fighting this. I hope you're right that it is just somthing in the air. I am having some pain in my left knee joint and some sores on my gums. But the weather has been yucky for 2 days as you know so I can blame some of that on the weather. I wear dentured too and some times that makes my mouth sore. Boy I wish there was a clear cut way of knowing what is going on. The first Rheumy appt I had I told him I wasn't sure how much was being sick and how much was my age. He said that is the way it always goes. Anyway thanks for your reply and I hope you get over your illness too.

Hi Hippi, I'm sorry you are having so much pain. Yes this lousey weather. Actually I am worried about the winter time. I know most on here have said they would rather not have the heat but I fear the cold in the joints. I guess I'll have to get some long underwear or somthing. I will go to the doctor if this is just a passing thing. You're right I really don't want this to interfear with my trip. I got 9 days to gets things done like laundry and packing and cleaning out the stuff from the fridge. get my bills paid all that stuff that has to be done before you take a long trip. So I really can't afford this to linger. I'm just wondering if there is somthing the doctor can prescribe besides pred. I'm just finding out that the way I react to large doses isn't normal. I get really paranoid and kind of wacky. I always thought everyone felt that way because it goes away after I quit the large doses. But since that isn't a normal side effect it can't be good for me. I hope you get to feeling better soon. You have been having problems since before your vacation havn't you?
Hi Patty, thanks hun, yes I am going to arizona but first I'm going to Branson Missouri for about 5 days. I'm not leaving til the 5th so hopefully I can get stuff done and feel better before than. I've been getting sharp pains shooting up my face today. Not like heart attack but like nerve pain in my face. I don't know what causes that. I told my SIL I was gonna go on the Lupus site to see if I could find anything. She didn't even let me finish and said "DON'T GO ON THE LUPUS SITE JUST PRAY about IT" errrrrrrrrggggggggggg. Hello don't you think i have done that? I just get so sick of people sometimes.
Sorry I'm really having a bad day. I would seriously like to *&&*%$##*((()**&^%$^%$ somone!
I guess I need to get some rest before I flip out LOL
