Is it a flare or the flu?
Three days after coming back from my Texas vacation, I started to get sick. I had mostly a bad dry cough, fever, aching joints and very painful skin, I could not touch my skin, it hurt so much.
So I thought, it's the flu, drank alot of fluids, took over the counter cough medicine and went to work, feeling like I am going to die.
Feeling a little better now, but far from feeling good.
Yesterday I went to get my blood checked, because of my high liver enzynes, today my rheumy called, telling me that my platelets a very low. That makes me think, that it might be a flare, as we all know,
a flare feels like you have the flu.
I am going to see the rheumy on monday.
What do you guys think, flu or flare?
