So, today iwoke up feeling so weak and exhausted. Attempted to get up and get ready for work but couldn't even brush my teeth let alone shower. My body was in pain , when I yawned my face and jaw hurt and I had a headache. I coukd bareky speak to my hubby as it was just too much effort. Back to bed and text my boss ti say I would be a no show. That was 7.30 and the next thing I know is it's 1.30. I stayed in bed all day, managed to cook dinner for my son at 6 and back in bed now. Consultant visit tomorrow and see what happens. I feel my lupus is having much more of an effect on me over the past 6 months. Worried this will mean a change in meds. Have been lucky do far and only on plaquenil, not sure what the next stage could be. Also worried now about work as I just seem to be so exhausted all of the time. Feel so lost at the moment and hard to stay positive. Do any of you have tips on how to manage work and tiredness?
