beginning of a flare?
As much of you know I was recently diagnosed this past April. I've since started taking Plaquenil and have overall been feeling pretty good. However, last week I started having horrible vertigo for about 3-4 days straight. This is a common occurrence for me, so I'm trying to figure out what my body is telling me. I was debating if maybe I have Autoimmune Inner-Ear Disease (which I was planning on taking to my doctor about when I go back in July). But, today I was doing some reading and an article was talking about dizziness occurring during the onset of a flare. Yesterday I woke up not feeling well. I had a horrible throbbing head ache (the kind you know isn't going away any time soon) and nausea. I took some Advil and felt better for a little while until it wore off (which continued to happen throughout the day). Of course it didn't help that it was 90 degrees out yesterday and my air conditioning is broken. Then, later at night I still wasn't feeling great so I decided to take my temperature. I've been running a very low grade fever almost nightly since I was diagnosed in April (which could have been occurring for a while since I didn't know there was a reason to take my temperature daily! ha). But yesterday evening I had a fever of about 100.1 and so I thought that maybe it was more than just a headache. I felt better this morning and I know that it's easy to blame every ill feeling on Lupus. So, what I'm getting to is.. what are your signs that you may be starting to have a flare? I know we are all different in how our bodies respond, but any insight can help
