I was admitted to hospital 2 days ago . I was in a new flare and then suffered terrible gut/bowel problems. I am now on IV anti biotics but CRP still rising and was 110 this morning. This is high for just an infection and wondered if this could be due to Lupus flare too ? Pain is horrible in abdo and joints. So upset as we thought we were getting somewhere with treatment for SLE. Does anyone have a similar experience ?
