I have had shingles in the past but have never felt this bad. I have been having an active lupus flare for about two and a half years but just recently everything seemed to be calming down and I was feeling great. So just as I was feeling well enough to start doing a few things I started getting a rash that is different to any of the ones I get due to the lupus and chronic pain that is really debilitating, so bad in fact that I am on Morphine due to allergies to other pain relief. I am trying to make sure I drink plenty of fluids as I have virtually no appetite as I feel very sick. Please help fellow lupies I hope someone has some answers and can let me know how long it lasted if they suffered the way I am suffering right now. Sorry to sound like I am whinging but all was going so well. xxx
