Thanks Hippi and Des, I hope you two are have a great day today. Hippi you nailed it right on the head. Yes I can feel them with my tongue but they don't really bother me and yes the one on the under side of my tongue hurts much more than the others do. I Have used the "magic mouth wash" stuff when I had it bad after the hospital. It was that or not eat. I hope it doesn't get that bad this time. mad

Des I was so happy to hear about your test results! what a relef huh? and Hippi, I hope you don't wait to long to get something for your anxiety. You know what stress does to us!

Love ya guys

Hi Carol,
   I use to get those sores alot, but since I have been taking folic acid, I rarely get them now. I hope this gets better for you soon. How are you feeling otherwise? Take care and keep us updated when you can. You are always in my thoughts and prayers.

Hey Bab's thanks for the tip. I just took some folic acid.Hopfully that will get rid of it quickly. Other than my mouth I don't feel too bad with lupus kind of stuff but I do have a plan old ordinary terrible earache. My PCP won't give me antibiotics. She told me to use Lotrimin. The pharmcist said to try white vinegar because one of the percription drugs they use the only active ingredient is vinegar. So I tried both and low   and behold..........Neither one of them are working! eyes . Gee no surprise there. It's actually starting to get down into my gland now. hurting much worse than before. This probably sounds funny but I am actually happy that I have a "normal" health problem instead of a lupie health problem. So anyway it looks like I am going to have to call my PCP and get an appt with her PA. Other than that I feel pretty good. A little tired but than i didn't sleep well but I still am feeling MUCH better than I have in a year!

I guess you're sorry you asked me how I was doing now huh? LOL

Love ya

Okie

I got those not long ago.  My doc told me to use warm salt water to rinse the mouth, and it really helped.  They are darn painful.  I also used Kenalog. It's a prescription medication to apply. It took me literally two weeks for the pain to go away.

Carol,

I get mouth sores too from Lupus. I get them all over and sometimes more than one at a time and they like to hang around for weeks!!!! There are a couple of Rx's you can get from your doctor, one is a paste that is good for the sores on your cheek, etc then there is a "magic mouthwash" that's good for the rest of them too. Like Babs I have found folic acid keeps mine away. I hope you feel some relief soon!

Hi Bab's omega, stacie, The only one in my mouth that hurts is the one on my tongue. Of course that one rubs against my teeth and makes it hurt even worse. I did take the folic acid today.

This stupid earache is making me crazy though. It hurts so bad. I don't know what the doctor is thinking. having me use cream. I need some dog gone antibiotics. I can barely touch it because it's so sore. it's hard to hear out of too. mad I started usiong the cream yesterday and it's just worse tonight. So I'll call her tomorrow and beg for some antibiotics. She'll probably make me come in though.

Ok I'm done sneveling. It's just that I am doing pretty well as far as energy level goes. It's just this other garbage that wants to make me miserable.

Love to all

Hi Carol.  Your ear ache sounds awful! You must be miserable. I sure hope you're able to get treatment before fever (or a flare) sets in.  As for the mouth sores, it seems I get them every couple of months.  I get them on the roof of my mouth that don't hurt and on my tongue that hurt like a son of a dog.  I use magic mouthwash and I also take folic acid daily.  I'm sending prayers and lots of hugs.  I hope you're feeling better soon!

AWWW, Thank you Donna, I'm always up for prayers and hugs. Yes my ear still hurts. I havn't called the doctor again. I'm hoping this stuff works. I really don't want to have to go into her office.

Hi Carol
Bless your heart. I hope u feel better soon. If it does not get better, it may mean the drugs are not working. Call you doc by then if it really is this way.

Don't mess around with your ear!! If you still think something is wrong go back to the dr or to another dr. Ear things can easily turn into hearing loss -- I have 2 friends who are each deaf in one ear due to letting things go too long.

 I get canker sores alot with my s.l.e lupus. I have found that foods with high acidic acid content(such as oranges, tomatoes etc. and stess), make it worse. Oral base and kank-aid and other forms of oral meds work well, as well as rinsing with salt water. I know how painful it is, so , hang in there. Also Benadryl and malox mixed together and then swished around in the mouth help........Good Luck. DD

Hi DD, I also wanted to welcome you. Feel free to start a new topic and introduce yourself. I'm glad you joined us. This is a great place for support and understanding.

Carol, I'm sorry you are still dealing with the mouth sores. I don't know when you see your doc again, but maybe you could even put in a call to him and see if he could prescribe some magic mouthwash (mine is a mix of benadryl, malox, and lidocain) or something else for it.

Take care

Welcome DD and hi Carol,

Sorry about your painful mouth sores. Ouch. Eating has never been such fun I'm sure. I can't imagine benadryl and malox mixed together, but add the lidocain and it starts to make sense. Hope that helps.
