I woke up this morning in the worst crash I have had in some time. I am 52 and peri menopausal. Each time I have my next period I seem to be left in a mini flare. It lasts a few days or so. High temp, aching, headaches, ulcers in my eyes, mouth, joints swelling. This time each day another symptom is added, I am finding it difficult to move, chest pains, nausea. All the problems I get singularly in one.
Although I know hormones affect lupus, including menopause I am struggling with the uncertainty of how long this will continue and each time recovery is less.
Has anyone had the same? I have been offered progesterone pill, however, I have reacted badly in the past.
