It's very consistent with a flare if you ask me. I'm feeling much the same way myself - if it lasts more than a week or two and/or gets quite severe then definitely contact your doctor and see if you can get something else that will help get you through this time.

Sometimes bloodwork can be done to check for things like anemia as that can cause a very severe fatigue too and can be helped with either diet and supplementation, or figuring out if there is another cause and addressing that (such as stronger lupus treatment if it's due to autoimmune process).

Hope you're feeling better soon...

Dear Naz,
Sleep as much as you can, drink plenty of fluids. I personally find cutting down on refined carbohydrates is a big help with feeling a bit better.

I am not sure what treatments you are on, but there are plenty out there and it might be wise to have a Review appointment with your Doc,

Feel well soon,
x Lola

Hi Naz,
I'm sorry you are having problems, but am wondering why you turned down mtx? It is an old drug and has a long history of use for autoimmune diseases. Of many drugs available, it has a much lower history for complications. By watching the labs, any problems can be caught easily.

Good luck with consulting tomorrow.
Sally

hi hope you are ok I go for my steriode injection next week. the reason why I refused Methotrexate was because me and my partner at the time wanted to start a family, know that the relationship is finished I may give it a go.
