I know. Our pain is awful. I think it goes without saying that whether I have fibro, or Lupus that our conditions often mimic each other and the pain we live with is awful. I would not wish it on anyone. It took me by complete surprise. I was thinking I'd just be able to breathe, and not be using a glad bag full of tissue. LOL. I sat in the car on the way home, and I was just floored. I kept waiting for the effect to "wear off", instead it just kept getting better. By the time we had driven the 15 minutes to our home I was totally out of pain. (it was a shot) I know that steroids have been tested for fibro and did not work. To feel like this, is just a gift. My hope for all of us today is that we get such a gift and that it works!
Waiting to hear back from rheumy. Will let all of you know what they determine. The only downside is that unfortunately, the arthritic pain is slowly ebbing back, but still not as fierce as it was.
