Hi, I'm new here.
I have been having symptoms for about 2 years. After two bouts of shingles. It was manageable, until about 6 months ago. The pain and the fatigue amongst a long list of others things finally made me seek help. My GP suggested that Lupus may be the cause and referred me to a Rhuematologist. I have seen them three times in the last month, and after "normal" blood tests, I was referred to the "Connective Tissue Doctor" as it was still thought to be the cause. He gave me a Depo Medrone Injection on Friday and I have to say it was like being given a magic potion, within hours, the pain and swelling had dissapeared. I can concentrate so much better, I had developed a stutter, and this has gone too. I have however, this morning been overwhelmed by tiredness. Does Depo Medrone help with the tiredness? The first feww days I felt great, but I wondered maybe I had overdone it, or whether it doesn't help with fatIgue. Any advice would be greatfully received.
