I was just diagnosed in April and I've been taking MTX, Prednisone, Plaquenil, etc.... I have tons and tons of headaches all the time, my body aches (especially now that I'm taking down prednisone -- does this stop any time soon??), my stomach is upset, I'm in pain, I'm extremely fatigued and I always feel like I have a fever (I'm cold, but I'm warm and I have chills) but my thermometer says that I don't. Oh Yeah! I can't sleep either...

I have recently graduated college. I lost my health insurance, and for the first time since I was 15 I'm unemployed. (Partly because I couldn't work and go to school and have lupus, and partly because I hated my job). So now, I'm a recent grad looking for work without health insurance. Last week, my trip to rite-aid cost me $292.94... I'm also going to need blood work soon. Does anyone have any advice? I have been turned down by regular insurance carriers and I can't afford "Hi Risk" insurance.... HELP!

I'm exhausted.....
