Hi everyone - I need your help - I've been in a bad Lupus flare for awhile now and can't seem to get better - I keep battling infection after infection - most days I'm so exhausted that the simpliest tasks seem like mountains. The issue though that I'm wondering if anyone else has had is that we can no longer "hear" a blood pressure in my arms with a stethoscope.
I'm wondering what might cause this? Has this happened to anyone else? Are their diseases that could cause this to occur? Even on Prednisone my BP has previously has stayed under 120/80 unless I'm stressed so I'm not prone to high BP. I'm currently on 50mg of Prednisone per day.
Just for background I do also have Raynaud's - Livedo Reticularis - Arthritis along with SLE - Lupus.
Any insight anyone can give is appreciated. I've read this board with interest - everyone seems to kind & helpful. Thank you for your help.
