I always knew I had Psoriactic Arthristis that was dibilitating. I suspected I had Lupus but tested negative awhile ago. In February I was diagnosed with Mono for the second time in my life. I also went to a rheumatologist that put me on methotrexate for my joint pain and skin. I developed pneumonia and was taken off the methotrexate and put on Predisone (which worked great for the joint pain and skin). As I recovered from the pneumonia which took some time and two rounds of antibiotic, my PA flared like CRAZY! I went back on the methotrexate, but I am still flaring and have been exhausted beyond belief. I missed another day of work today. My question is does the Ebstein Barr Virus have anything to do with this? When I ask my regular Dr all they say is that it depends on the individual. Why, why, why am I always so fatiqued? Some times I will sleep for two days at a time. I asked if they tested me again for the Epstein Barr and they said no. They tested me for Lyme and it came back negative. Thyroid normal. No diabetes. Any advice? I am on folic acid now and I am taking B12 in the morning (just switched from night to morning). Any comments or advice would help. Thank You so much.

Hello again!I posted a while ago and wanted to update everyone on my throat, it is the most bothersome sysmptom for me. I went to an ear nose and throat specialist in July, she put a tube down my throat and said all good up to the vocal cords go see a gastroenterologist. I went to see her today, she will do the same but down to my stomach. She says it sounds more like Sjogrens than like...
Today I went to see the Family Dr and the Rheumatologist. The family Dr took 3 tubes of blood to check my blood count, a metabolic profile, TSH, and A1C. My BP was 140/98, so he was concerned and talked about upping my meds. After some errands and a meal, I went to the rheumy who was concerned that my BP was too low. It was 103/70. You see, my meds had finally kicked it! Anyway, he took my hair...
