My dr says my problem is autoimmune, but not 100% sure it's lupus. My ANA is positive, but my antiDNA is negative..I have had pluerisy, uveitis, skin rashes, tongue sores, joint pain and hair loss... been on plaquenil for a few months and have been better, but am having a flare now. (Horrible flu like feeling, sore throat, joint pain horrible) This is day 4 of medrol and I was feeling better, but yesterday started to have chest pain and went to the store to buy some food and feel like I have been hit by a car.
Don't know if that means I need something stronger, or if its starting to not seem like lupus, because the medrol isn't helping now.
I feel like every part of my body is rotting.
Don't know if I need to do anything, or just ride it out.
