hi all me gain lol right my flare up the other day has now ben treted by having my knee drained my rhummy was concerned as i have red lumps on both feet on they are both like blocks of ice he has put me on a 2 week course of steriods i think he said it was something to do with blocked blood vessels in my feet anyway i have an appointment with him in 2 weeks time however i have now started with another symptom the skin on my neck sholders and under my armpits are very very painful to touch could this be the steriods or is it something connected to my arthritis. my rhummy has tested me for lupus 4 times already and has retested me again as its still in the bk of his mind dnt like to think im making mountain out of a mole hill so thought id run it by you guys first as i kicked up such a stinker when i wasnt haveing any luck with my flare and my rhummy finaly got me in and had to get another doc to help him clear his patients to make room for me and the end of his day

thankyou will give my rhummy a call monday and just run it past him i wish i could just stop the steriods as all im doing is putting weight on i havent been this heavy for a long time and always been contious when it comes to calories and weight but now i have no control over it i was 9st 10 less thaan 6 months ago and now im slowly creeping to 11st obviously not good to gain weight to put more strain on the joints. i cnt possibly cut dwn my calories any further as im roughly eating 1200 1500 aday cant do any physical exercise as my joints just cant take it think im going to have to try some swimming
