I haven't been on the group in a while. Joint pains have been up and down with only a few set backs though tons of family stress and pets very ill. I was able to work 30 hours a week last year, omg after not working for 13 years. I came down with a sinus infection that was started by a 15 y.o. root canal. The root canal stuff is flooping in the sinus. I was hoping to fight it Naturopathically. The NP doc suggested a holistic dentist who discovered it was tooth realted and the holitsic guy suggested antibiotics as I was getting horribly ill. My joints were swelling and I could feel body aches and almost fever. I have been using clindamycin and felt better a few days and now feel absolutly miserable, like the antibiotic is chemo. My face is all hot, my joints ache, it hurst to sleep, nausea, bad headache. I'm about to quit my job I feel so ill. They are waiting to have a specialist read the CT scan before amputating the tooth. I will have no chance of implants for the now 3 missing top molars so they are going slow.

The rheumy and Naturopath and GP all run the ANA test but they are negative but the symptoms look like Lupus to them.

Any thought of clindamycin and flares? I knew bactrim made me feel the same way.

Now I have a fever 99.5 not my usual 97. I suppose it's not a bacterial fever but a flare fever. I got them a lot last year. Last year doc said it could be a hashimoto fever too. Well I guess it's a good excuse not to go to work. I hate this new contract job. Probably stress that brought all this on.
