Firebabe, I don't know how you do this!!!!!! SUPERWOMAN!!!!
Oh yeah, the cold is nasty for me too. But for me, it flares my Fibro not my lupus. My Fibro makes my muscles feel the way you described.
Before you went on this call, did you feel fine? Were you flaring before you went out? Do you usually feel fine, go to work, feel like crap after? You said you rested and then felt more comfortable. That doesn't sound like a lupus flare at all to me. That sounds like Fibro! Lupus will knock you on your ass for a lot longer. A good nap can do wonders for Fibromyalgia.
I'm asking because that is usually how Fibromyalgia will present itself. I'm a very active wedding photographer. Lots of heavy gear, 12 hours on my feet non-stop. My lupus is fine, my Fibor is a disaster....
Have you had your blood tested recently? I'm just trying to think outside the box here. Do you have Fibro? LOL. Sorry, just investigating other possibilities for you.
What are your thoughts?
