Tink, Lynnwood and Audrey Ann thanks so much for the tips and well wishes. My tongue is so swollen it presses against my teeth, so I have ulcers too. I've started the probiotics and I didn't have a clue that nystatin came in pill form. That's great to know in case the probiotics don't kill my yeast (I'm visualizing).
On the down side, I have been getting progressively weaker since my rheumy visit last Tues, and I really didn't think I could get any weaker. My internist wasn't in, so I saw a PA who consulted with their endocrinologist. Lots of blood drawn and started 20mg prednisone per day for 1 month, decreasing 1mg per month. My face is so puffed that my eyes are just teeny, tiny slits. It's a good thing I remember where my lips are or I'd be the first lupie to starve while on prednisone. Thanks again ladies. Love, Butterflake
