Hey angel, you have to excuse me I'm an old bie but I havn't been around in awhile so I'm not really up to speed with everyone. It's sounds like a typical nasty flare to me. Are you walking outside? If so it's probably not a good idea. also if you are hitting a brick wall it's your body telling you to stop. You need to take a break. Give yourself permission to not exercise or be out in the sun or even do the dishes. You should probably discuss it with your doctor. (rheumy) many times they will either put you on or bump up your steroids to help you get past the inflamation. Your body is stronger with all the effort you have put into it. Hopefully your flare won't last as long but your gonna hit brick walls maybe a lot of them maybe not so many. Feeling like you have the flu is typical for lupus. muscle aches photosenthesis.
Just take a break be good to yourself. Be proud of what you have accomplished. when you are better go back to your exercise program. It's true what they say use it or lose it. Butyou really need to get with your doctor and see what they can do about the flare your going thru right night. You might try some heat and cold alternating on your joints. Somepeople use aveeno oatmeal bar for the rash. Avon has oatmeal body lotion too. Hang in there
