Yes that's what my family think is wrong with me. A drama queen. I have been ill now for at least 18 years if not longer. Been tested for lupus results came back negative. Though have a positive ANA result. Have raynards and liverdo reticulitis which breaks out into small spots which bleed like ulcers and never heal. Had root canal recently which infected my sinus cavities affecting my face my lymph nodes the side of my neck swelled up, my headache was unbelievable. The infection went down to my chest. I was on 4 types of antibiotics and have two days of taravid and steroids left to take. I get a rash on my face, chest and around my neck on exposure to the sun. Have pains and needles running up and down my legs. A cough and a sore throat and a wierd feeling stomach. Been to a rheumy but he was a pompous **** so I won't go back. He did not believe me one bit. Have decided to take photos when the next flare happens. I am so unbelievably tired all the time. My family think I am not serious when I say I need to go to bed. My husband just says u can't lie in bed all day. I find the mornings are the worst with blood pressure sky high. But later on during the day it gets a bit easier and I can go about cleaning and tidying up the house. Why does no one believe me! I was a working professional 3 years ago when hubby retired and I decided to join him, it worked out well as I was getting more and more flare ups. I honestly don't know what to do next apart from the photos I am now going to take on next flare up. I pray that infection from root canal treatment will be totally gone when steroids finish but I am still having problems with popping from sinus problems. Sorry to go on and on.
