I'm still not able to reply to anyone's posts on my iPad -which is so annoying -as my iPad is my preferred means of keeping in touch with everyone here. I've cleared my cookies and all - still wont let me reply.
Any idea of what I can try? It also won't let me click if a post was helpful (I.e. Dr. V's recent posts)
For the technicians - when I hit the reply button it either takes me to the top of the page I'm on or does nothing.
Thanks Lisa & Lisa! Funny how so many Lisa's have lupus....
Lupylisa - I use to take vit. D but quit because I had one of those, "I'm sick of taking so many d*#@ pills!" spells. I never saw any difference in pain or joint level though with or without the vitamin.
My feet, knees and hips are the worst to gel up in just minutes of none movement. Heat would be nice but not very practical as it's all day problem.
Thanks Caprice - I seem to be having the issue with my IPAD - which is a new problem, as I have used my IPAD many times in the past to post. It has now started to not let me even post new discussions....grr! Had to go back to the regular computer to post this.
Thanks for the suggestions, I'll try fiddling with the darn thing and see if I can get it working.
Does anyone know of anything I can do for joint stiffness? I don't just have it in the morning - although it is horrible then too - but I have it all day, every day - any time my joints rest for as little as five minutes, I have to "break" them free again. And it's all my joints with my hands and feet being the worst. If I drive or sit for five minutes I can barely walk when I try to get up....
Any ideas on what I can do?
((LupyLisa ))). I try to reply to your post but when I hit the reply button , nothing happens. It will only let me post a new discussion . It may be doing that to others as well. If it continues, I will post a new discussion so that it can be fixed. Hope you are feeling well!!!! View Thread
Does anyone have trouble with horizontal nail bulges/ridges? These go from side to side - not nail bed to tip. I just noticed both my thumbs have this large bulge under them...weird. Didn't know if it was a lupus kind of thing. It's not a line but like a hump. You can see and feel it.
Sorry you are in so much pain! Is it pain on breathing or do you have a lot of coughing with it ? -- if so, you really need to see a physician to rule out pneumonia or pleurisy and to be treated if it is.
If it's just pain in the ribs and not associated with coughing and so on, you could have costachondritis - which is a inflammation of the of the cartilage around the ribs...
Either way, it just plain sucks and I hope you get some relief soon. I've had both in the past and they are no fun!!
