I just don't know anymore. I've started a new treatment 2 weeks ago, and have also been trying to cut my prednisone. So I have been very tired, and my symptoms aren't as controlled since lowering the pred. Good days and bad, but then I started not feeling well even more so on Thursday and a bit more feverish. Yesterday afternoon, I was feeling so week that I even asked my husband to take the dogs out for the evening before he left for his night shift work, because I wasn't feeling like I could even walk around the house. After he left I just for worse as the evening progressed. I layed on the sofa for hours because I didn't have the strenght to get up. Then finally did because I knew I needed to take more meds to try and combat the fever as I felt like it was just getting worse. I made it upstairs barely, one of the dogs peed on the floor and I started crying because I didn't have the strength to clean it up. Took meds and felt like I needed a shower, that it would make me feel better. Well the water did help, but I couldn't stand up so I sat in the shower and was so wiped out feeling that I kept falling asleep sitting in the shower. I was starting to feel afraid that I wasn't going to be able to get myself out. I finally did but just barely dried off and fell into bed. Then I spent the entire night burning up but not being able to stand being out of the covers as I was freezing cold. Couldn't even hold my phone to text my husband at work. He finally called me at about 1:30 AM because I wasn't answering anything and he was worried. This is so not like me even in flair ups. I'm better this morning but still very week, my head hurts and I feel like the fever is just barely at bay. What do you guys think? I have never felt this sick in my entire life and the last year and half Ive been in a constant flair state. So this seems different to me than my normal flair ups. I was actually quite scared by it.
