Hi. Lately I've had a whole bunch of new things popping up and just wondered if anyone else has experienced this type of pain or problem-and what I should be doing about it.
First of all, I literally get scalp pain from laying my head on my pillow all night. My pillow is soft, and it's not like I've just layed there and slept for 12+ hours. I normally get about 8 hours of sleep, but I will wake up with pain on the surface of my scalp. Really weird. Anyone else?
I've also had pain in some of my vertebrae going down my back. They feel like they are warmer to the touch than normal and painful. When I've had these types of pains, my legs somehow hurt worse too. I'm not sure if that's because of the inflammation in general or if my back has something to do with the extra pain in my legs.
Also, my most recent urine tests showed an increase of rbc per high powered field. I used to only have 10-25 and that number has increased to 50-100. I've made an appointment with the nephrologist again as my rhuemy requested, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had their numbers increase, and what they may do about it. I go to the neph dr. on the 15th of April.
So, just a bunch of questions/symptoms for anyone who might be on the same page with me. Thanks!
