Flares

when can you tell you are having a flare?

A MyLupusTeam Member said:

For me, I have flushes, increased pain and usually end up with pericarditis. Sometimes swollen nodes and low grade fever

@DensiseHynes yes platelet and extremely low white blood cell count and other irregular labs. In my case the rash in the face and the pain indicates some of these levels are not normal.

@A MyLupusTeam Member welcome!!!! My Dr wants to see labs almost every time I have flares. Too make sure nothing else is getting involved. Then we discuss management (if I need steroids) or stronger pain killers, or increase de Imuran...
