Does anyone have a problem with this? I can't seem to get warm and is this a sign of a flare? I've had the chills so bad at night even with a heating pad I"m waking up freezing I can't get warm. I shiver all the time. I also run a low grade fever.
Running a low grade fever is quite common with Lupus until it's under better control. That aside though it's probably a good idea to have a urinalysis and make sure you havent got some kind of lingering urinary tract thing going on, they exhibit similar symptoms.
Hope you feel better soon.
I think our thermostats are broken :hehe: it's seems to be a common complaint amongst us, but best to check thats what it is.
Hi Set, Lily must think like my husband, he say's that I don't have a thermostat. I just chalk this up to Raynauds, but I didn't think that it got this bad. I live in Florida, and we had a short cold spell, I was in bed with heave nitegown,socks,bathrobe, sheet,electric blanket,bedspread, and two heavy blankets doubled, and I was still cold. Once I warm up, I can usually stay that way. It has never preseeded a flair for me, but yes it is common , for me anyway. I hope that you get thru this quickly.
I used to be cold all the time until I had a endometrial ablation,since then I have always been warm. I did go through a month of fever and chills and it was a indicator of trouble ahead for me. I have had a raging infection in several parts of my body that we finally got under control during my hospital stay. My fever and chills are now gone.
So, you may have an infection brewing and it is better to be safe than sorry. Get in and see your gp asap.
