Sorry to hear about your flare. I agree. The thought of nephritis is scary. I would not want to have it at all too. I also doubt that if missing two days of Plaquneil will cause such big flare. Lupus is always unpredictable. Sometimes good and sometimes bad. I hope you feel better soon.

hippimom, Your right it's a Nephrologist. All these ologist docs get me confused. lol. I am miserable and feel just rotten. Thankyou for the pep talk. I really need it.

omega, thanks for helping. Hope everything is going ok for you.

dbab, the doctor said that I probably had a flare just waiting to go. And when I missed my plaquenil thats all it took. Lupus is strange.

Just wanted to say that I know how HORRIBLE it can be to be battling lupus and then to battle another infection on top. Its hard too because one never knows if the fevers are the lupus, or something else! It turns into a big mind game. argh.

I do not have any wonderful advice or glorious words of wisdom (if I did, I would be using them on me too :-) , but I want to tell you that I feel for you and am thinking of you and will send soothing healing peaceful thoughts your way.
