hi there,

i have lived with SLE for 9 years now and after a major flare several years back, the symptoms have mostly been limited to joint pains and fatigue. However , this time just before my periods were due i ended up with a feverish feeling( although there was no fever) with severe bodyache and fatigue and felt like i will die if i take another step and these symptoms lasted for a couple of days and went away when the periods were over. my periods are always mild and dont last more than 3-4 days. I am confused whether it was PMS or SLE flare. I am in a new country and have yet to find a good rheumi/gp. I would like to know wht u can make out of it :cry:
