I'm trying to be optimistic right now:) I've had a low grade fever for the past week, since completing my steroids (which took an extra 6 months to come off of:P) I caught a cold last week too, and went to get some oxygen on the weekend in the Er. So, tonight at work, I felt off. After my 8 hr shift, I was tired, like really tired. Right now my temp is 39.1. Higher than my usual 37.6. I'm taking my imuran and plaquenil faithfully, but I feel horrible! At what point should I see a doctor? My face also has that lovely red rash with craters of puss!
I should mention I'm allergic to Tylenol and because oft fatty liver, unable to take Advil. Any suggestions on how to bring the fever down would be greatly appreciated:)

Hi Jaclyn,
      I would call your doctor and let him know how you are feeling.  My current Rheumy gets on my case when I don't keep her informed.  She's always telling me to not discount symptoms that come up....sometimes she thinks I am being "too tough."  It's good to keep your providers in the loop.
