Hello Donna,

Given that you have recently just come off all meds (hopefully that won't be for too long), I would say that there is every chance it IS lupus. Often people describe their bad days or flare days as feeling like having the flu.

Of course, it might be the flu. The only way to tell really is if others around you are sick and if it goes in a few days.

You need to watch that this doesn't get too bad and if necessary get back to your GP (whether lupus or the flu).

HI Donna

I have pleurisy because of the Lupus which causes pain in the chest, especially when I breathe in. IT can be sharp and stabbing or just a constant nagging pain.
Doesnt help you much I know but my rheumy told me that is what mine was.
Do you not think chest pain should be checked by medical person just to be safe ?
Hope you get it sorted soon and if it were me I would be sure to get it checked out.

As for ruff voice, do you mean hoarse as in sounds as if it sore but isnt and feels kind of gritty ? In my case a very dry mouth through Sjorens causes mine to do that a lot.

Hope all is sorted soon and you feel better soon,
Hugs and best wishes
Pam

Donna, so sorry that you feel so rough. Have you restarted your meds yet? Hopefully you have, and they will kick in shortly. If not, I suggest that you do so immediately.

Hope that you feel better soon.
