I was up the entire night last evening due to a fever I developed that peaked at 103.2. I am in an awful flare and of course am using the pain meds for that. I called my primary and went in to see him and other than the fever I am not symptomatic. I have improved with the bronchitis issue over this last week and until this morning I haven't been coughing. Even now the cough is mild. He had me get a chest x-ray and labs that required them taking 2 bottles of blood (not 2 tubes) so they could do cultures. Don't know what they are looking for, but I just feel lousy. My doctor gave me two antibiotics to take for 7 days. I was suppose to take my mthx tonight and the Humira on Thursday. With missing both of these meds and already being in an awful flare, I dread what might happen. I can't take prednisone. I don't know what is going on in my body but it sure seems that everything in me is broken. I take lots of supplements and vitamins, I eat well and I wash my hands frequently and stay away from those who I know are ill. What else can I do short of living in a bubble? I should get the test results tomorrow as he ordered them stat. so I'll let you know.........Thanks.
