Well, normally at home I'm fairly decent about
pacing myself so I don't aggravate the Lupus and thus don't suffer much.
This last weekend (June 4-9) I took a trip to help a friend at a convention. Long days of standing on concrete floors. Tired out, non-regular meals, started having night sweats.
Generally it takes me 2-3 days of sleep to recover after traveling. This time I have night sweats, fever blisters, inflamed & very sore finger & ankle joints, and still want to sleep all day after being home all week.
So, I guess I'm going to take a prednisone blast - 2 days @15, 3 days @10, 4 days @5, that's all. Hopefully that will put be back to normal.
Anyone else have fairly predictable travel after-effects? Just wanted to share that it isn't that unusual, and what my rheumy has suggested I try....
