  • I have had very similar symptoms, low grade fever, low BP, and I'm 48 so i have some arthritis in my joints...I'm used to that pain which is normally bearable with my pain medication.However, about two months ago i began having SEVERE pain on the inside front of my left knee. I wad given a cortisone shot which does nothing to HELP the knee, it simply numbs the inside so you don't feel the pain..i was so grateful tho..to have a break from the pain.Now it isn't working, and because i have to favor the left knee, to stand, sit or get out of the car by putting my weight on my right knee, now I'm having those symptoms in the right as well xrays and MRI show arthritis but nothing bad enough to warrant the amount of pain i'm in .so the doctor did a blood panel and it came back positive for Lupus. Which pretty much reads like a list of my own symptoms....only a few i don't have..i dont have the rash, my skin isn't super sensitive to sun altho i do burn easily and my EYES are very very sensitive to the sun, or any bright light.so, im to see a rheumatologist who will do even more testing so we can find out what KIND i have and how to manage it. They are booked until late may and its only March 13th :/ so all i can do is hurry up and wait. Might be worth being tested.

  • You still need to consult a doctor and just mention that medicines make you uncomfortable. Maybe a doctor can discuss a healthier option without using any kinds of synthetic medicines.
