i have lupus and im currently having 6doses of cyclo. i recently developed a chest infection and have been on anti-biotics for 4week but they make me sick. unfortunatly my last dose of cyclo has been moved to a later date. bad timing as im doing exams atm. im also doing 12mls of imuglobilin(i dunno how you spell it) i have a fentynal patch of 37mg every 3days but this is just because im addicted and not for pain. my question is though why when i take pred at 60mg that my chest seems to clear up staight away and i stop coughing almost imeadiatly and why did iot take so long for this to be done. normaly i would put up the does myself before being told but i hate pred so much, im gurenteed not to sleep while on it and when i change my patches ie today i dont sleep. so now i look forward to 5nights of hardly any sleep during my exams. im so fed up. every time i start to get well and start my life again something happens. sorry im having a bit of a moan here but im really fed up. im a 27 yr old singal mom who has had serious lupus since 14 left school, had a stroke, intesive care for 6weeks another time and much much more. ive had countless treatments that have worked and then stopped. the patches piss me off the most but im paying for privet rehab during my summer holls its expensive but worth it, ive got no where with help from doctors. if anyone out there can help or just to take the time to read to this point and still be carring on that is much appreachiated. sorry about my spelling. hope to hear from someone soon. p.s im new and dont know whow the site works yet so please bare with me.
