Just Need a Little Support
Some symptoms have been sneaking up on me and today I really feel lousy. My legs hurt so badly - both of my hips in particular. I'm getting nerve pain again in my right leg; my right knee is numb. And, I'm so fatigued today (I slept OK - I should be rested) - lightheaded, maybe feverish. I'm down to 5mg prednisone (going down 1 mg a month.) Don't see my rheumatologist until the end of the month. I've been doing so well, this is just making me depressed. Has the prednisone been masking my symptoms? I'm still on imuran, plaquenil. On neurontin, too, but I've been weaning myself off of it (not on doctors orders...just on my own.) My husband is traveling again so I'm alone sometimes - not a fan of that. I'm working half time (I'm there now...) and lately some days it's all I can do to put in 4 or 5 hours. I know there are much worse symptoms to deal with than fatigue and pain - trying to keep it in perspective - but it still 'stinks.' :cry:
