I've been having more pains lately. Ribs, shoulders, and neck have joined in among the usual grumps and gripes. eyes
 
Today for the first time in a long time I fell asleep for a 4 hour long deep nap. I woke up with a sore throat, a nasal sore developing, and a ugly looking group of mouth sores popping up. smhair
 
I was planning to see my PCP tomorrow for my usual bloodwork. I also have an appointment with my rhuemy on Wednesday. Who do I complain to?

Hi Couchtater. Don't know if you'll read this in time, but your rheumy will address your flare: nose sores, mouth sores, and pain. Your PCP will treat your sore throat. Physicians usually only treat in their specialty. I hope you feel better soon.  Love, Butterflake

Throat was feeling better today so I didn't complain about my throat to him.

Hey Joy,

Sorry you are not feeling well. Glad to hear the throat is better though. How are you feeling today? What did the Rheumy have to say.

Try to get as much rest as possible and I hope you feel better soon.

Hugs,
Barbara

I see the rheumy tomorrow, Barbara.

Today my feet felt so swollen that my shoes felt too tight.

Lupus is so crazy.

Yes it is Joy, do they have you on a water pill? I can't remember if you're on steroids, I know that they can cause water retention. You may want to ask your Rheumy about getting one, if it's a huge problem for you.

I hope your appointment goes well and you start feeling better soon.

Hugs,
Barbara

I take 2 lasix a day for retention.
They don't look swollen but they feel swollen and sore.
