Hello, sorry I haven't been on much, just kinda lurkingI am still trying to get in a schedule with the new night time job I got. I really like it so far.. Anyways, not to sure if anyone remembers in the fall when I went threw all that testing to try to find out why my hands were going numb and painful? Well they finally said it was due to a disc I have out in my neck.. Well about two weeks ago, it came back, plus other areas and issues.. Well i wen to the dr last week as I couldn't take it anymore as it was getting really painful plus I was having problems at work with my hands.. The dr. was quiet for a while, left the room and came back in.. Well I had some other tests done, and we finally know what is/ and was going on. I was put on a antibotic in the fall for a sinus/ear infection. Well about 4 wks ago, I had another ear infection(yes, 35 and still getting ear infections)
Well my dr put things together and the tests confirmed it. I have medicine induced Lupus.This anitbotic can give you Lupus. Welll the pain meds/ antiflam. meds are not helping. If I took it right, now, I can have flare ups anytime.. But I do go back to the drs Monday so I should know more. This is just so scarey, a med to help an ear infection caused me to get Lupus..It just makes a person wonder if, I know me for sure, we should take any meds at all..
Also, still no word on when hubby is going back to workI am about at the end of my rope.. But, I hope with in a couple of weeks I will have a "new member" of the family to share with you allI can't wait until I can share..
