PAIN~~ seems to be one of my biggest issues with Lupus. I read over and over that it is others big problem with Lupus too. Pain is not stressed with Lupus like we experience it. My doctor does not get the extent of the pain that takes over your life somedays, many days. PAIN~ and the Fatigue that goes with it. We all take something different for pain, it never works the best for me maybe it touches the edge of the pain is all. But sometimes I am really medicated. PAIN~ I believe is what brings us down the most with the fatigue causing depression. I believe more emphasesis should be on pain...I know I hurt so badly somenights I cry. I pray, I beg for relief. Anything I can take to take the edge off. Then I get through another day for thee pain especially during flarups is back....to deal with all over again. Pain and Fatigue keeps me from doing things I want to do and must do, but cant!!....Its a demon that wont go away. PAIN!! grrrr .....Thanks for letting me vent....I get so angry with the pain and fatigue.
