I posted awhile back about my low-grade fever and profuse sweating.

I have been forced to change doctors because the current rheumatologist is just not following up like I feel he should. He put me on Prednisone and Plaquenil, and scheduled me for a follow-up three months out, and I don't even have a firm diagnosis yet. They won't give me blood test results over the phone, and I cannot get in to see him before the end of January. I am in the middle of having records transferred.

I had to stop Plaquenil due to a bad reaction, and it feels like the Prednisone (10mg) is no longer helping.

In the meantime, I have a question. Can Lupus cause a general feeling of illness? I have not felt right for the past few days, but I can't figure out what exactly is wrong. I don't have nausea or anything specific.

My lupus-like symptoms are: rashes; low-grade fever for over two and half months; profuse cold and clammy sweating; pain; fatigue; and recently I developed this burning feeling on the tops of my arms, over my abdomen and my back. It burns but feels superficial, like it's on the skin. The only thing I can liken it to would be a mild chemical burn (there is no hot feeling attached to it). I'm sure I've forgotten some symptoms but those are the main ones. Oh yeah, I have peripheral neuropathy (confirmed in a test) but I don't know if lupus can cause that.

I'm concerned about this weird feeling of being sick but not knowing how. Sometimes I actually feel like I'm dying. It scares me. :(

Thank you for any input.
