My face goes bright red and hot like you wouldn't believe. My cheeks in particular. I keep a water spray in my handbag to spritz as sometimes I feel like I have chronic sunburn.

Hi,

You can count me in on this problem too.

I get a weird feeling then my face gets very red and hot. Then sweat just runs down my face, my hair gets wet. It is an awful feeling.:(
They come at weird times.

There is a plus though. When I am very cold at times, I get a hot flash and it warms me up.:p At least it is useful then, but very miserable other times.

Take care,
Lyn

Hi, I have this problem. I have just bought myself a cooling spray as it is so uncomfortable. The only good thing is that it is now cooler so I hope it wont be as uncomfortable.

How are you Mel? I hope that you are coping and not too ill. Is it Nov that you go back to your rheumy? Have been thinking of you.

Take care

(((( Mel )))) :hug:

Searching the internet about lupus is ill advised. Some people do get very severe lupus and serious complications. However most people are on meds and living normal everyday lives. The important thing to remember is that you are being tested and that you are already on treatment. Okay you are not totally under control, but that will come with time. You are in good hands.

I hope the appt with the docs goes well. You have been under so much stress lately, I am not suprised you are flaring. Maybe you could ask the doc for some pred to tide you over?

Not long till Nov now, let me know how you get on with the docs.

Hugs
