Sat. I started with bad headache, so bad I was crying and hurt from front of head to down back of neck and was having problems walking because of front of shines. Today fingures are cramping along with toes. Thigh on right leg keeps hurting and lower back near tailbone hurts also under butt checks hurt.
 
It took two loritabs to make headache go away but not the aches and pains.  I tried sinus tabs on Sat. and those didn't work so I know not sinus headache. I was dealing with sick children all week. Don't know why parents can't keep sick kids at home. Espeacilly when throwing up and runs.
 
Anyways just wondering what's going on. Tomorrow I'm going to see if dr will run different tests.

I would definitely make an appointment with the doctor. Sometimes a flu can cause all out havoc and sometimes it could be a flare like that. I have had some flares in the past that were weird like that. Best to have doc check you out and run the routine bloodwork just in case. I really hope you and your family feel better. Sounds like a lot on your plate right now. Take care - Kristin

I came up "normal" for years (about 10+ years) before lupus showed up on tests. Don't worry too much about the tests. A flare is a flare. Eventually, your body will make it known what is going on with it and point to a particular disease. Either way you have to deal with what symptoms you get. Keep an eye on it for now if anything gets more pronounced or seems particularly odd bring it to the docs attention. If you lose consciousness or have muscle problems from the headaches seek medical attention right away. Your headaches aren't the common variety unless it started in the front and worked its way back.

Did you have your ANA's checked lately? When it travels to more than 2 or more areas at the same time (i.e. artritis, migraines, etc.) it could mean the disease is active. This is what happened when my bloodwork first started coming out positive. Prior to that it was always one thing at a time. Sounds weird, but worth a shot. Also, have a neurologist check you out too. Sounds neuro. I had similar symptoms at first and there are numerous causes (i.e. MS, lupus, neuropathy, Mathias Gravis, etc. or just simply an odd type of migraine). I guess that was why it took so long to be diagnosed. All of my symptoms were neuro for years then it attacked the organs, joints, etc. Not sure of your history so you may want to look at the criteria for lupus and see if you have any of the 11 criteria. Hope you find relieft - Kristin

I have a few of the criteria for Lupus. The headache started left side of my head up front then wored to right and up in the hair and then down the back of neck. Also was haing alot of problems seeing.

I know right now it is raining outside and my arms, legs and my neck hurt. I'm also starting to get a headache. I've been having night sweats the last couple of nights to where I have to take blanket off and then put it back on a little while longer. My temp is staying around 99.2 all day. and I'm sweating like crazy but I really don't feel sick just muscles and jouints are hurting. I've had to redirect my fingers a few times while writting this. They want to go their own way. Don't know if that makes sense.
