Just a quick note to say hi! The pain has eased up a lot, but not the swelling and my temp was only 99.4 when I got up this morning. If it goes up this afternoon, I'll be calling the doc. I'm wondering if it wasn't triggered by my having to take my kids to catch a plane to my sister's house Tuesday morning. We had to get up at 3:00 AM, and I didn't get back home until 7:30, and then ate my breakfast and took my pills... which is my normal time. I did drink a cup of coffee, like I always do when I got up, and also drank about 20oz. of water during the time I took my kids. Did tx make your system extremely sensitive to schedule changes like that?
to newleaf: Thanks for your help. You are the first to suggest lupus as a possibility. I am going to make a dr. appt today and request a blood test. Sorry if this is repeated. I'm terrible at using this site. You think by now I'd get it. lol
