Hi everyone-I have a question for you, and hopefully you can give me some info. I have been diagnosed with lupus for about 12 years, and in all that time, I never had the face rash that sometimes comes with lupus. Recently, I have woken up in the middle of the night, feeling that something wasn't right, but not knowing what-I know that I was aching all over. So I started reading a book to try to get back to sleep. I started feeling my face getting hotter and hotter. I thought I must have a fever, so took my temp., and it was normal. Now my face was feeling like it was sunburned-it hurt and felt like the skin did when I got sunburned at the beach. I finally fell asleep, and when I woke up about 6 hours later, my face looked like nothing had happened. This happened the other night again-I started aching (more that I already was) and my face turned bright red, and hurt like a sunburn again. It was only my face that gets like this, no where on the rest of my body. Can the lupus rash come and go so quickly like this? I will be seeing my rheumy next month, as long as I can afford my Cobra payment for next week. Anyway, any info. you might be able to give me will really be appreciated. God Bless, and keep well.
