So I went to the allergy specialist and was told I am allergic to just about everything(grasses, molds, foods, weeds, feathers/cats/dogs, etc. Since I cant get allergy shots due to lupus and the allergy meds i tried do not agree with me, my allergist recommended prednisone to control my symptoms. However my rheumy seems to think I only have joint/skin involvement(even though ive had burning pain since ive seen her & have other nervous system symptom) so im not too sure what she will have to say about this. Even though the plaquenil has helped some I know it is not controlling my disease & theres needs to be something added to control my disease process. Im just wanting to know if anyone thinks the prednisone is a good approach to my allergy/lupus perdicament and if anyone thinks I should consult a new rheumy about my care. She has not believed me about the cns lupus possibility and wont do a spinal tap to prove or disprove anything. I am at a stand still here and frustrated. I started back to school today for a new semester and already have a rash from the lights. I am very highly sensitive and it brings out my lupus horribly. I am just rambling now lol Sorry about that I am writing this post with severe brain fog...does it ever end?....ehh...hope you all are well. *hugs* -Lupie Britt
