This was in another post, but wanted to add it to this post per moderator's request, so it would be located in one place:
So....I took the ibuprofen as suggested by the MD last night before I went to bed which helped with my pain.
However, I woke up this morning feeling like I was run over by a truck!!
I couldn't pull myself out of bed until about 15 minutes ago. I am achy and tired and have absolutely no appetite. I had to force myself to eat something in order to take my meds.
Is it possible to flare after sun exposure a week ago? And is it possible to flare even on the meds that are supposed to make it better? I wish I knew more about lupus and UCTD...I feel so uneducated about it even though I've read the books....I hate feeling like I still don't know enough about what's going on...
I am kicking myself for having a good time last weekend and for picking up an extra 12 hour shift at the hospital last week. I was feeling so well though and so happy to be feeling well.
I know it seems like all I'm doing is ranting....but I'm just so FRUSTRATED!!
If this is a flare, should I be watching for other things to be involved and watching out for other symptoms?
