Okay, as most of you know I started Cytoxan for Lupus nephritis bout 3 weeks ago. about
3 days after the treatment my pain got less, kidneys improved, no more night trips to the bathroom. Well last week my joint pain started coming back...Then I just started feeling really tired and just felt ill. I noticed my feet/ankles where about
2 times their size from edema. Thursday morning I had people asking why my face was swollen especially my eyes. Friday and Saturday morning my eyes where extremly swollen. Well, I notice my urine color had been changing. It went from normal yellow color to pink to brown and now it is brown with a hint of pink...At times its really foamy, sometimes it isnt. The last two night I ran a fever of 100.3-100.8 but during the day it is 96.9-97.8. I don't know what I should do. For some reason problems seem to hit me on the weekends. Any ideas? I have increased my prednisone from 15 mg to 30 mg which has helped with the pain but not so much the urine...
