Just got up after 12 hours in bed trying to convince myself that I can control my symptoms by wishing them away...... When I got into bed at 8pm, I had aches in random places on my body, a headache, pain in my abdomen that feels like cystitis but is just part of my lupus. Had to take some steroids to try and calm everything down, which thankfully it did, but every time I take them I lose weight?????? Could it have something o do with my thyroid? I take 150mg thyroxine for an under active thyroid.
Got a blood test this week for my methotrexate monitoring and booked to see my lovely GP on Wednesday who will no doubt send me to my consultant. I am worried that I need to increase my methotrexate as most medics are of the opinion that we should keep steroid use to a minimum.
Any help would be gratefully received, having one of those moments where I worry about my future
