Hi, I was diagnosed with lupus SLE this time last year when I spent 3 weeks in hospital bed bound due to my joint pain and extreme weight loss, head aches that made me pass out and a very high temp. I was then put on my medication felt better and was allowed home. I do have flare ups but at the moment I am having the worst flare up. I feel in the complete pain I was in last year when I was in hospital. I promised myself and my son I would not go back into hospital but I honestly don't know what else to do I have took all my medication I've even took codine ibuprofen paracetamol and morphine to try get rid of the pains but my joints are so inflamed and burning I can't really stand as my knees hurt that much I feel like I'm going to drop my legs are shaking. Please if anyone has any advice I really need it. I can not go back in hospital and I honestly don't know what they could do for me as I'm on all my medication. I can't sleep due to the pain because I can't get comfortable. I just wish it could get into remission and I could carry on my life. I had to give up my job because of my flare ups and my headaches made me pass out at work the doctors advices working was not for me ATM. Which gets me more down and depressed I'm just stuck in one big circle. Any advice would be great thank you x
