Hello ,, i have had lupus for almost a year. and i am on plaquinil twice a day along with other meds. i do have pain medication i can take prn such as lortab. but i dont cause i am a travel nurse and work alot of different shifts. i have been struggling with finding a core job and getting out of traveling. i either work 8 hours eveinings or 12 hours nights or 11am to 11pm. just varies. i have tried hot showers and stretching exercises. but the pain in my back and joints sometimes i have a hard time getting out of bed. and if anyone has suggestions i am open to them .. i dont take the pain medication cause i cant let it alter me. and does make me tired.. just frustrated and didnt know if it is going to be like this for ever and will always hurt.. really tired of this..
am a registared nurse and i do the travel nursing .. i was diagnosised with lupus 7 months ago. i have joint pain. hips, ankles, knees, wrists, shoulders, etc.. i am on plaquinil 200 mg twice a day. i am just wondering if cold weather makes the joint pain worse. i know that cold can. i guess i just need to know if living in a place that has snow makes it worse. i am currently living in texas and working in iowa for 13 weeks . and if the travel is harder on a person with lupus.. just trying to figure out if i should continue to travel or not.. any advise would be appreciated.. i know after working 12 hours i hurt.. and have difficulty sleeping .. thanks.. hope to get some advice..View Thread
