I think I just recognized a pattern tonight, which may indicate I'm headed into a Sjogrens flare, or Fibro, or both.
First came the oral thrush rash. It started 2 days ago so I immediately started using the mycelex tabs; otherwise I lose my voice completely. It was almost gone this morning and I really can't see any thrush in my mouth.
Last night as we were watching TV I noticed I felt really cold, shivering cold. My hubby said I felt like an ice cube. I bundled up in my bed and stayed there until this morning. ❄
Got up this morning and showered, dried hair, & got dressed. Short of breath again. I ended up changing tops 3 times until I had on a heavy turtle neck sweater... It got to 60+ today. As the day passed I noticed tingling and burning of my inner lips and cheeks, then the tongue, and finally the outer lips; whole mouth. I have all these teeny tiny pin-prick blisters all through my mouth and covering my tongue, & split crevices on the tongue too. And it's all very red. The later in the day, the more pain it's causing. It's even going down into the upper throat, to the point it's painful to swallow. This is the worse breakout I've ever had by far.
I'm still chilled so I took my temp. It's 96.7, the lowest it's ever been too. I was trying to play tub with my dog earlier and he grabbed the toy and ran past me. So I thought I'd make like I as chasing him and squatted slightly and walking faster than normal. Suddenly I felt light headed, like I might pass out, and felt like things were spinning and going black. I ride in place and held on to the walls, then realized I was breathing too hard and shallow, SOB again. I've had shortness of breath (SOB) all week. A few minutes later I walked to my phone and called my pulmonologist office and I have an appt next Tuesday.
If it's not a flare then my December cold has gone into something else, since it's still hanging around. Whatever it is I just want these blisters to be gone. It feels like my mouth & throat are on fire, or have been saying by a bunch of bees! 🔥.
I oppose everyone else has a much better weekend. Our weather was suppose to be beautiful. I was looking forward to getting out of the house a little. I guess that's not likely to happen.😷😥 🙏🌼💕
