Today I was following a nurse down the hall when my foot decided to cramp up suddenly without warning. mad
 
I had to tell her to slow down and I hobbled on to the exam room. She was very understanding and walked slow with me. She told me she had a friend with lupus who had just got a new kidney.
 
Afterwards when I started to leave my foot had stopped cramping. confused
 
Lupus sure does like to hit and run! skull

When those moments hit me, I feel crazy. Pain will start in one place, roam around for awhile and then end up somewhere else. Having Lupus has taught me to be really easy and patient with myself.

I sure hear you. My lupus is jumping all over my body. It is driving me crazy. Right now it is attacking my left foot and big toe and has been for several weeks, plus I have terrible head sweating. My doctor prescribed Cloniden patch to see if it would help with the head sweats, but it has not worked.

Went to my bible study's get together today and was embarrased with my sweating. Had to sit and fan myself through it.

Lupus is running all over me today! Whaaaaa!
Today it decided it would surprise me and jump from joint to joint and up and down my spine.
Right now it's giving me terrible spasms in my esophagus. I feel like I've got to burp but nothing's coming out.
