Hmm, I'm on the third day of a three day weekend and I'm having one of those spells.
For those of you not in the know yet, I have some autoimmune issues...not RA so don't ask. Mostly I just experience wandering joint pain and fatigue. You know, not all joint pains that wander are lost. Haha. I wish they would get lost.
Anyhoo, I take medicine for these Tolkien joint pains and fatigue. One I call poison - methotrexate. The other is a nice little shot in the belly couple times a month. These meds help a great deal. I shouldn't complain because I can remember the time before being diagnosed, when I couldn't turn a doorknob to get out of my bedroom in the moring, due to so much pain in my wrists.
But I digress...
The spells consist of low grade temps, generalized achiness and malaise. That's it, nothing else. Because I am considered immunosupressed one might think that these are signs of infection. A couple times they were - UTIs. Most of the time, no other symptoms. I have even had bloodwork done during a particularly tenacious spell (lasted two weeks on and off!!!!!) and it was ok. They normally last 2-3 days then go away just like that. They occur randomly...the last spell was a couple months ago. But then I might have two in a month. Very random.
So, thoughts anyone?
And I quit my old rhuem so manybe now is a good time to find a new one and set up an appointment eh?
