Hello I am new. Little about me I am almost 23 years old, have 3 awesome kiddos and I am 17 weeks pregnant with our last baby. Married for almost 5 years to my hubs. I have Lupus SLE and fibro among with other sister dieseases of lupus. My rhumatologist is suspecting RA but cant take any x-rays due to me being pregnant. The past month (maybe longer) I have had excuciating pain in my spine..starts mid-upper back all the way down, and hurts to try to put my chin to my chest (cant even do it). the pain is hard to describe but I am sure you all know of it. It hurst so bad latley I am limping..it hurts to sit, stand, laydown..sleep is very minimal due to me trying to find a postion to relieve just some pain. Anyone have any idea of what this sounds like? My doctor put me on 10 days worth of prednisone (10mg) b/c I am in a lupus flare, and that is taking the edge off the pain to make life manageable, but my spine still hurts pretty badly, and I am scared the pain is going to go back to what it was after I stop taking the prednisone. Also, my right side of my back goes numb and tingly? and the whole right side of my body has decreased feeling then the left. I have had back discomfort before from pregnancy and I know this is something more than that, I have a pretty high pain tolerence but the spine pain is almost to the point of unbareable. Any ideas? sorry so long and rambly. I hope everyone is having a great day!
