I've been experiencing what I call "mini flare-ups", meaning I may feel bad and have joint pain for a day, but the next day I'm okay.
I've been taking medication and I'm supposedly in remission, but I've noticed that especially if I don't get enough rest, I have joint pain the next day. I really have no other symptoms but this. Does anyone else experience this? I realize that everyone has different symptoms, but how are you affected if you don't get enough sleep?
A few days ago, I had pain in my feet and by the end of the day, I was limping. I was trying to walk normally, but it was too painful. It was embarassing because I'm a flight attendant and I don't tell many people about my lupus. So here I was, limping down the concourse pulling my luggage. People were giving me strange looks.
