Hey thanks everybody. What's really getting me down is the constant pain. It never goes away. I"m so frustrated and tired of this.
Lucy, those low grade fevers will be your Lupus. In Fibro, we tend to have a lower than normal temperature. Fevers aren't associated with Fibro. The other way for me to know which one is flaring is I get my sed rate checked. If it's normal, then my Fibro is flaring. Fibro isn't inflammatory. The other way is to adjust your prednisone. If you go up on the dose and you feel better, it's your Lupus. If you go up and you feel worse, it's your Fibro. Fibro and prednisone don't work well together. It's really hard to tell sometimes which one is flaring.
Yeah, I'm just feeling exhausted from trying to cope with the pain. I'm on Flexeril and it does squat for me except make me groggy. I'm waving the white flag........
Thank you for the prayers. Love you guys!
