View Full Version : The Stress Caught up to Me!

03-29-2009, 10:04 PM
Well it finally caught up to me the stress of last week ... I am getting sick. I am very frustrated, on the edge really tired and my body aches. I had been doing so well no flare nothing. Until I woke up this morning. For some reason everytime I get into a flare I get a cold my nose is running........ ROB HELP ME CATCH IT.My throat hurts, is this common ? Does this ever happen to anyone else. Or does my Lupus just single me out from everyone elses symptoms. I think my Lupus has a thing for me. LOL Also another question i don't remember if i have ever asked this. I SEEM TO FORGET ALOT. Oh my question does anyone ever get a UTI before or during a flare and pain in there kidneys. Hope someone can help me out ( which i know someone can always help here) anyway i guess thats all for now, lets see how i wake up in the morning.



PS angel oliver thank you for the photo comments i will post new ones soon

Hi Sandra,

How are you feeling today? A bit better I hope. I get a sore throat alot. Sometimes is just dry, and sometimes I get the mouth sores and it hurts from those. I lose my voice alot too. I've never had a UTI, but as my plumbing is different, I'm probably not the person to answer that question. Hope you are having a decent day. Go easy on yourself.

hi sandra,

hope you were able to go to sleep. i understand about sleeping pills, i can't take them because i get such violent night mares. several people seem to take tylenol pm, benedryl, and some take melatonin which is a natural sleep aid. there is an extensive thread under "lauri's lounge" about this.

yes, runny nose, sore throat, low tolerance to stress, are all things that i go through especially when in a flare. the runny nose just drives me crazy, i now keep a tissue in my pocket because my nose just starts running with no explanation or warning.

i don't have a problem with UTI, but i know others who do. i do experience pain in the kidney area. had all of the tests, and was told that the lupus is attacking the tissue around the kidney....lupus nephritis (lupus of the kidney) is not painful, so hopefully you don't have to worry about that. i do see a nephrologist who is keeping a close watch on my kidneys because they are testing as borderline operational.

forgetfulness....ha ha ha we all take good laughs at that....i sometimes just sit in amazement at not being able to think of a word that i use all of the time.

the stress thing is what makes me hide out in my bedroom...i become very "snappy" and impatient just before going into a flare.

so sorry that this week has hit you so very hard....i am wishing a better week starting today for you.

oh yeah, and i am going to check out your pictures.....it is so nice putting a face with each member.
