I've been flaring badly for the past 3 days & feeling dreadful. Had bloods this morning & consultant phoned to say nothing in my bloods indicated a flare? She said my symptoms sounds like a flare & sometimes it doesn't show up in bloods & I need to see gp to rule out a viral infection & check urine for blood. My symptoms consist of, fatigue v bad, butterfly rash which comes & goes, headache, joint & muscle pain from head to toe, fever, night swests, sensitivity to light, nausea & lack of appetite. I'm so fatigued & achy everywhere I can barely walk the stairs. I would greatly appreciate any advice or if anyone else has experienced this. Thanks in advance & wishing you all well.
My current meds are, plaquenil 200/400 alternate days, prednisolone 5mg, tapered from 30mg recently, tramadol slow release & duloxetine for chronic pain syndrome. I forgot to add that my short term memory is very bad at the moment & what I intend to say comes out slurred and unlike what I meant to say, does anyone else suffer from this? & I also repeat myself all the time.
