I am wondering if you are taking any NSAIDs for inflamation. That is a really high SED rate. I know mine was high and I at times have the same type of pain. My Rheumatologist told me that it is due to inflamation. I also have SLE and have had it most of my life. I am just wondering. I hope that you get to feeling better. God Bless
Lupus for many years. Like most of my life. Sjogrens that started at 35 and Scoliosis, Spinal Stenosis, Degenerative Disc Disease, Osteo-Arthritis of the spine, Ankylosing Spondilitis, Periferal Neuropathy, mild CP and now just recently diagnosed with PA. I had a disc replaced in December of 2007.
Plaquenil, Sulindac, Imuran, Celiac diet, Tramadol and B12 shot once a month.
