Hope you're all ok. Just wanted to ask a few questions. I still haven't had a formal lupus diagnosis but it is 'at the back of the consultants mind'!
Firstly, nausea. No vomiting, no stomach upset or anything like that. Just plain old nausea. I've been back at work for the past few weeks on half days but I work in a ridiculously hot office in Birmingham city centre. My walk to work isn't the most pleasant (full of horrible sights and smells) and by the time I get to work I find I'm desperately trying to find somewhere cool and nice to sit (there isn't really anywhere). And I struggle to even speak for a bit which is quite difficult at work. Is this normal and could it be lupus related? I've also been having blood in my urine and am having a kidney ultrasound tomorrow. Guess if my kidneys aren't right that could cause it?
The second thing... Feet! I've noticed my feet hurt a lot more than normal for the past few months. Walking short distances makes me feel like I've walked round somewhere all day. But yesterday the pain in my right foot made me actually hobble a bit, this morning was the same and the pain has turned from a dull ache to a slight shooting pain in my right heel. I'm at home now but can barely even move around my flat! Bit worrying. Any thoughts? I'm going to email my consultant just to point out all of this to him.
Despite all of this, I'm still managing to remain mentally upbeat
Lots of love to you all x
