I finally have my rheumy appt thursday. i'm feeling horrible cause my prednisone got cut from 40 to 10 mgs..and other symptoms i'm noticing, swelling in my hands and feet mostly at the end of the day, headache, and my blood pressure has been high.. i really hope lupus isnt affecting my kidneys! i'm sure this dr will do all the blood tests to check me out, and i found out my insurance will provide me with a ride to all my dr appointments!! which is a load off my mind, seeing as this dr is 2 hours away..anyways, will update more thursday,hope everyone is well
