I have been sick for a year with fevers, extreme fatigue, joint pain, rashes and tingling in my legs. I was told that I have an auto-immune disease and treating me for Lupus. So, in reality, no diagnosis.
I have stopped working, and most days, can't do anything. As soon as I do, I get a fever and become completely exhausted.
I have been on Prednisone for 5 months but it isn't working. My doctor gave me Plaquinil and I had a severe allergic reaction. Now he wants to put me on Imuran and I don't want to take such serious medication when they I don't have a proper diagnosis.
I was an extremely active person and now lie in bed most days. Does anyone have ANY advice at all. I am at my wits end.
