Re: To Patience 50

I'm sorry to hear you feel poorly. I have pain in my jaw, ear, and up the right side of my face some every day. It is sharp, sudden and short lived but it happens often during the day. As if I touched an electric charge to the right side of my jaw and it just traveled up through the ear, cheek, and around the forhead. I am told that ear aches and jaw pain like this are common with Lupus but I can't find out why. It is annoying. I try not to let it stop me. I have days though when I just must lie down. Lupus also causes severe fatigue, just like hypo T. No one knows why.

When U consider it I suppose I do pretty well all in all. I will push this week to do the show and next week I will be wasted all week and probably not pick up any energy till the end of the week. I don't know why that is either but what can one do. Sometimes you just have to accept it for what it is and try to work around it.

Hope you feel better soon, May God Bless and Keep You
