I should have read this post from you first!! Hahaha... I told you to go see a rheumy and you mentioned that in your response here. I read things backwards. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers Irish. Same back to you too!
Yes! Chronic illness blows huge chunks of crap!!!
Thank you for confirming the fatigue factor in this. I don't have a fever. Pretty sure there's no infection going on, but I'll get my CBC and other lupus blood tests done on Monday to make sure.
I'm seeing my rheumy in August regarding all this. I haven't been the same since a near-death medication allergy in June of '07. Before that happened, my lupus, fibro, etc, was very much under control. Not so now. The sacroiliitis was diagnosed in 2005, and the neck arthritis in January of this year. I'm going downhill!! I'm also feeling very old. I'm wondering if my prednisone and Imuran just aren't working anymore. Plaquenil might be an option for me. I just don't know.
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
