Day after TG flare
lupylisa44 posted:
It should actually be night of thanksgiving flare. All of a sudden my tendons started aching and swelling, turning red and hurting. I slept until 2pm and am going back to bed. Just in time for the holidays!This sucks!

With love, with patience and with faith, we'll make our way.

Hope you feel better soon!! I'm in the same boat with a horrible cold/bronchitis type thing that struck me this past Tuesday.

Get some rest!

I am too. I hate this as my sis don't believe I have Lupus to begin with. But I hope I can get rid of all this without going to the Dr.

hi lisa..
i had a flare up the week before thanksgiving that left me crippled. i knew it was coming because i walked up 7 steps and felt like i ran a marathon. it lasted for a few days. i use to feel guilty for sleeping so much..but i have to give in.

hang in and take good care of yourself until it passes. you are not alone.. )

Do not get stressed because those have a problem believing. Please take care of yourself and tell sis you hope is never has to experience your life.
