Just when I thought my flare was over and I was on my way to feeling better for awhile I get the feeling I may have jumped the gun. I began oxycontin
3 weeks ago, after starting it I truly felt better than I have in months. I finally was able to go out and do things that I had not been able to do for a long time.
Well, on Saturday I went out for the day with my friend and her 3 girls for the day. I had a great time and felt great time while I was out with them. The next day was a whole other story. I was so exhausted I slept until 4:30p, I got up, ate something and went straight to the couch. Since, then I have felt horrible, no energy, fatigued, if I get up to try and do anything I break out in an instant sweat. Then today I started throwing up.
I don't know if I am heading into another flare or if my body just has not recovered from Saturday. Typically when my lupus is active I break out in a sweat instantly when I try to do anything. I don't know if this has anything to do with it or not, but my doctor's office called me last week and asked me to come in and have my LFT's redone again because my liver enzymes are sky high again. I don't think the high enzymes would have anything to do with the way I feel, but I don't know. Needless to say, I have felt so poorly this week I haven't made it down to have the blood drawn this week. I tried to today, but after I showered and got dressed I started throwing up, so that knocked me right back down.
I just don't know what to do next. I guess just ride it out and see what happens next. I am already on so much dang medicine I really don't want to add anymore. So, I haven't called my doctor. I hope
to feel better tomorrow so I can go get my bloodwork done. If anyone has any input I would greatly appreciate it.
