Waves Of Heat Inside My Body, Not Constant?

Waves Of Heat Inside My Body, Not Constant?

I have been getting intense waves of heat going through my body all day. It happens sporadically throught the month. It feels like my blood is on fire or something. I've already gone through menopause so its not that. Has anyone else experienced this and, if so, can you tell me what's happening?

I am tagging @A MyLupusTeam Member. She suggested an OTC nasal spray that would inhibit mast cell release. In case your hot flashes are caused by inflammation from a systemic histamine release.

Easy Random Bruising

Easy Random Bruising

Hi gang,
Discovered several small bruises on my body today. They are not in the high traffic typical areas. I have 4 on the underside of my right forearm and a few more on my left upper thigh. I have been ill the last couple weeks and thought it was a flare but all of my recent labs appear stable, the only noticeable change is that I started Cymbalta 2 weeks ago.
Anyone deal with this?

@jean5236 I’ve got them down the back of both lower legs (for three plus years). Not on prednisone or other lupus meds and they started before hydroxychloroquine 🤷🏻‍♀️

New Side Effects With Benlysta Autoinjector?

New Side Effects With Benlysta Autoinjector?

I have been on Benlysta for about two and a half years, but last month I switched from the IV infusions to the subq autoinjector. Last night, on my fourth injection, I ended up having an unusual reaction compared to my normal. From what I understand, they are common side effects for Benlysta, I just have mostly only experienced tiredness and only occasionally the slightest bit of nausea
Immediately after the injection last night, my skin turned red in a big circle around the injection site.… read more

Swelling, Water Retention Or Weight Gain

Swelling, Water Retention Or Weight Gain

Hey everyone. Apologies for the question…I don’t mean to be insensitive or rude but I need to hear from those who have suffered swelling and those who are overweight

My body keeps changing, even day to day. It’s really giving me panic attacks now since it doesn’t seem normal at all. I can’t figure out what is wrong…

I am swelling terribly. My skin is starting to get tight in my legs and elsewhere. The sensations I’m feeling don’t seem normal

I don’t know what about this is real weight gain… read more
