Well, I just got the call from my rheum. My ESR and C-reactive protein are both high. They are both inflammatory markers I've learned. He started me on Prednisone twice a day he also wants me back in Monday instead of 4 weeks from now. Knowing this and what symptoms I have I don't know if this means Lupus or RA. How can I know for sure?? I have a lot that falls into the Lupus role, today I've ran a low grade fever and I run them often for no reason. I also have the sulfa allergy which I didn't use to have, learned this 3 years ago. My joints are killing me right now, fingers, wrists, ankles, elbows, shoulders, and neck is bad this week. I don't know which way this will go. If anyone that has Lupus that has these symptoms could let me know your experience and any advice is appreciated. I pray that treatment helps my pain right now, its bad. Thanks to everyone!!
