I tend to get what I call a "mini flare" about a week before my period. My fatigue level is far worse than normal and my hands and feet get very sore. I also feel a burning sensation across my shoulders and in my legs along with very low grade fevers. Nothing thats not tolerable but it can be draining. I have never gotten a rash or any type of sores (thankfully!) but I do feel much worse. I also tend to feel worse in the winter when it is terribly cold out.
I got a cold at the tail end of our vacation last month and it has been lingering. The cold combined with my monthly "mini flare" has really did me in this month. I have scheduled labs and a rheumy visit mid Nov. so I will try and hold off until then. It doesnt help that I have been swamped with my work so I need to try and take it easy when I can.
