    Flares?

    Hi, I was diagnosed with Lupus 11 years ago, I also suffer with depression, fybromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis. Roughly 3 years ago I had what I assumed were lupus flares. These take on a distinct pattern, not wanting to eat or drink, hot and cold chills, excessive sweating, loss of weight and vomiting if I should try to eat or drink, these last 5-6 days then takes me a couple of weeks to get over them. I was admitted to hospital last week following quite a severe 'flare'? these episodes are getting worse and the time between each is getting less. The hospital said it wasn't lupus, likely gastroenteritis, but I am not convinced. Has anyone else suffered with anything like this?
