View Full Version : All Locked UP

08-09-2009, 03:58 PM
Hi everybody, feeling pretty bad today....and confused as per usual with this disease.
I had a very rough week last week, one of those where no matter how much I wanted to stop this world so i could get off i couldn't , Too many issues, too many visitors, too much work and nobody seeming to be concerned about loading me up with their issues and what the results were going to be.
I had a terrible night, my body IS pain from tip to toe, my muscles locked and aching, stiff and uninterestd in moving without great effort.
I watched a program the other night that describes this pain and stiffness to a T, it is called SPS or stiff person syndrome, it was on 20/20.
I am new to Lupus and wonder if Lupus can do this too? My spine and shoulders and neck are solid as are my hands and legs. My jaw and face as well and feeling numb.
My brain has left me and my eyes ache, I have been suspected of having CNS issues although it has not been fully explained and just in what way I am being affected.
I'm rambling, sorry for that, thanks for listening. Sandra
