I had a major op at the end of March and the next month to six weeks I spent recovering, including being treated for a UTI. I then felt quite bright and the sun came out big time so I enjoyed three weeks of good weather (although I was careful to wear a wide-brimmed hat, etc). Then my husband caught The Cough, which has been sweeping gradually across the UK, I believe. I came down with it a week later and I haven't been well since. I haven't had a bad cough since my teens and this was a real humdinger. As a precaution, given I have Lupus, Hughes, other things, my GP put me on antibiotics for a week although he said he thought I had a virus. Anyhow, five weeks on I have finally stopped coughing but other things are now rearing their heads. Around a week ago I started to hurt, and hurt. I have pain through my shoulders, up my necks, down my arms, my arm joints ache on and off, my legs have occasional pain. Plus I now feel so cold, despite my body temp showing as normal ish on my thermometer. I was at the hospital at the weekend and they did bloods. Normal CRP, ESR of 6, a WBCC of 5.5 (I'm normally <4) but nothing of note and declared me fit and well. I assumed from the three results I've listed that this meant no Lupus flare but that my body was still fighting off a viral infection. I've been feeling very down for a while now, normally a sign of infection or something amiss physically. Then today I started to get a very high pitched whining in my ears (my INR is normal for those with Hughes) and I feel dizzy. I'm so fed up. Just what is going on? Could this be a Lupus flare, despite the normal ESR and body temp on the thermometer? Thanks for any ideas.
