Flareup For Xmas

Hello all

Merry Christmas although mine might not be that merry. I am having a flareup, 2weeks ago I was meant to have my bulimumab infusion but bcos I had a bad cough and a flareup a week earlier, my Dr's postponed the treatment for another week. The next week I went in again but my cough was still very bad so he took some cough samples, chest x-ray and postponed the infusion again till the 3rd of January. He gave me 2 antibiotics 1grm amoxiciline(3ร—) and another antibiotics 2x a day.

Since then things are not so good, my lupus rash is worse, my butterfly rash is so obvious that covering with make up is not working (i am light skinned African but my face is sore and red. I am sore and swollen, my ankle, my leg halfway down my leg is swollen, shiny and sore. I look like I added 10kg in 1week. I reduced my steroids 4rm 20mg to 10mg bcos I have been eating like a pig lately. I look and feel inflated. Can this be the antibiotics triggering the flareup?

I was looking forward to Xmas ( especially bcos of friends & family coming and also the food and drink (port and Guinness).).

Wow, this is me this Xmas I hope yours will be all merry. Merry Christmas to you all and have a blessed and prosperous New year.

Take care and God bless
