Since beginning this flare about ten days ago my 6MP was increased to 75 mgm. Up until the wee hours of this morning I have tolerated it ok. However, about 3am I woke up to burning sensations in the upper part of my body, like it was on fire. Wondering if this is from the increased 6MP, or the combination of that and all the other meds. Anyone else ever have this reaction?
