Yeah, this defies all sense. I've been on prednisone for 8 years. Long time. I know what my body feels like when it's a lupus flare, and when it's a fibro flare. I feel quite different. This flare, is totally new. It feels like Fibro, lupus, arthritis all mixed together. I've never felt like this.
It's the loss of appetite on so much prednisone that has me really dumbfounded. I should be eating my face off right now, but I'm not. I've actually lost 6 lbs in 2 days. I am eating. Just want you to know that. But my portion sizes are smaller.
I'm not on any anti-d's or new medication either. Everything is the same. I"m seeing my pcp tomorrow. HOw much help she'll be I have no idea.
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
