I was at the rhuematologist today because for the last month i was feeling rotten he told me from my symptoms i am having it sounds like i am back to when i first got diagnosised and increased my methotrexate to 1.2 injectable and my prednisone to 30 and i will taper off again. Not only is it the lupus but also the myositis acting up. Bonita

Bonita what is myositis?

Hi Bonita,

Sorry you have to go through this again.
It is just such a damn roller coaster ride and I am so ready to jump off it.
I am in bad shape myself.

Oh Bonnita I feel so bad for you! I hate this disease and what it does to people that I care about!

@Debbie- myositis is inflammation of the muscles. Very painful

Bonita I am sorry to hear this. It seems like a lot of us are beginning to flare right now. I'm blaming the change of weather. It finally gets nice enough to go outside and enjoy the day and we all hurt too much to do it.

I literally feel your pain right now. I hope that they can get it under control as quickly as possible and that you start feeling better soon!

myositis is inflamation and weakness in the muscles over your whole body

I've been dealing with myositis as well. I know how frustrating it is. I cant even brush my hair without taking a break, and I have long hair =( I hope the increase in meds will help quickly with few problems so you dont have to be on so much so long.
