I am 49 and was told they thought i had lupus at age 28 when i was having some problems with my knees, feet and arms hurting. i had physical therapy and got better. i worked in a factory with a repetitive motion job and standing on concrete all day so aches and pains now and then i thought were from my job. i had some really traumatic things happen in my life when i was 39 and started feeling achey all over. then when i was 40 i got pregnant . after i had the baby it brought out the lupus full force.i could not drive 5 miles down the road without feeling like pulling over and taking a nap, i was so fatigued that i on several different occasions i would fall asleep while the dentist was drilling on my teeth, i couldnt get up off the couch, i didnt feel like fixing myself anything to eat. i have never felt so bad in my life. i started working on the farm when i was 7 and have always worked, always been energetic, always full of life and now i dont even have the strength to brush my hair.i cannot strss enough how bad i feel. i feel like i have the flu without the cough and runny nose. i never have a day of feeling good. i need help. i need something to make me feel better and i know there has to be something out there. i see a rheumatologist who keeps putting me on different meds and i am still no better. i went off predisone because i gained 60 pds. and that stuff makes me mean as the devil. surely there is something that i can take to give me strength and energy. and something for pain. i take plaquenil, pain meds and others but it just takes the nip off of it. i never feel good and no one understands and it is getting to me. my lifw is passing me buy. i now have more in common with 90 yr olds than people my own age. i have lupus sle, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia and who knows what else theyll say next time. any advice on feeling better?
