The likely possibility is that the chest infection
) is still not completely under control.
You break out in sweats after a high temperature when there is an underlying infection.
abnormalities (increased thyroid activity) can cause similar symptoms, although I am sure that must have been checked out already.
ESR is a blood test
that is useful to monitor if there is underlying infection in lupus, or another bout or flare up of lupus.
CRP is normal in lupus flare up, and raised when there is significant infection.
You may need to up your steroid
dose or get another course of antibiotics, as per the blood results.
I hope that was useful.
