Since last thursday my immune system has been attacking my muslces which claused a lot of pain. I started on codeine(30mg) and paracetamol(500mg) which my body treated like candy so by the sunday had to ask for stronger stuff. Got given tramadol (50mg) which started well but by third does it made throw up at awkward moment out of the blue. By this point it stoped treating the pain. My body since then has clung onto the side effects leaving me nausea. Today i havent been able to eat properly as some foods make it worse. Then today my period also decided to come and my immune system is know making the pain there twice as bad as what i normally get. 111 advised i see a doctor who told me until i see a doctor in bath next month they can only offer me pain meds. This is because im yet to have an official dignoes but have sugested lupus. I can understand why they cant help but since coming home i have gotten worse. I know have a butterfly rash/ swollen feeling in face and a tempture of 36.8(under toung), i normaly read low.
I have no idea what to do and wasn't offered much by a gp. So i was wondering how do you peeps deal with a flare up? Any hints or tips that might help me? Thanks in advance for any responses.also sorry for any spelling mistakes.
