So I went to my PCP today because I was so sick I could barely move. I had to have my sister pick me up from work. The doctor also put me on an antibiotic, Im not really sure why. I dont think that I have an infection. I do however have a low grade fever of 100. Is this a symptom of lupus? What are some of the side effects that you guys have with prednisone? I understand that I may not react the same way to it as all of you, but I would like to know what I am getting into. The doctor said that I may gain weight while I am on it, which I am not to excited about. I cant start until Saturday if the antibiotics dont make me feel better by then. I dont think that they will. I was on antibiotics for a month in January, and it didnt do any good. Any input? It would be greatly appreciated.
