Hi I've been ill for months now. It started in 06/14 unexplainable fevers, just flu like symptoms in June. Then I was treated for Pleurysis and Pericarditis in November and I had a mental/psychosis issue in March 2015 I don't really know what happened. I just began crying and walked off my job. I ended up driving around for hours and just in complete confusion. I had 10 tubes of blood taken at the GP office and they called today "Grey area for LUPUS" I need to see Rheumy to get Dx...... My knees, fingers and glands are swollen. I can't sleep my knees hurt so bad. I am on 40mg of Prednisone my GP said I was just too swollen etc... She stated she knew I had some type of Rheumatic disease she just didn't know which one. Oh and it seems as if I've been in a flare since I landed in PA from Jamaica.... I've been suffering since. I cannot work, I can barely get out of bed in the morning to take my kids to school. I have to lay down every 2 hours or my world is a wreck. My husband is my rock but I really feel hopeless... Please help, I don't know what to do my fog is horrible and now my lower left back is killing me!!!!!!
