Hi, I am out of FMLA time for the year. No release from work is available believe me I have tried. I am trying not to call my rheumy and can't really afford meds right now anyway so I am living without pain meds. I haven't slept in two days and haven't been able to eat either. I am pretty much ready to give up at this point.

I had a question. My dr asked me about mouth sores and I said i didn't get them. I was thinking last night (while looking at my rash that I thought wasn't a rash and freaking myself out) and I have gotten sores in my mouth from time to to. They don't really hurt much unless they are on my gums (those are the worst) but I have been getting them for like 5 to 10 years so I really don't think they are related. So my question is what do the mouth sores associated with Lupus look like? Do they hurt? Do you get them on your gums?

The other thing I am worried about is my 6 year old. She has been complaining about her legs and arms hurting for a couple of months now on and off. I always give her motrin when it happens. Should I have her looked at by her ped? Is this something she can get from me?

Sorry for all the questions I am just looking for things I need to mention to my dr.
