You will need :
1 or 2 Cantaloupe
2 (1) gallon ziplock bags
Slice up Melons into the size of ice cubes! Put in Freezer style Ziplock bags and freeze for at least 3 or more hours. This also works with watermelon and grapes even strawberries. Frozen fruits that contain mostly water are the best thing for you when this intense inflammation happens. Home remedies are the best cure all, however I do use Meloxicam if need be. Us fighting Lupus or Fibromyalgia have to deal with this inflammation so what better way to deal with fire is to not just put water on it, but ICE, ICE, and more ice. It kills it literally you just have to be patient and let the fruits and moisture do its job. I also use blocks of ice packs on my chest or body for long periods of time. Go to Amazon and look up Nordic Ice and you should find these white packs that are basically like 8 x 10 or smaller … these packs literally last up to 8 hours!!! I will put one on my back at night and fall asleep. I get the best sleep with those packs and by morning if all goes well I am almost pain free! Almost lol! If anyone needs more suggestions please respond and I will try to help.

I’m in the process of elimination as far as diagnosis but I have gone to the Er because of this and basically they told me it was anxiety to calm down and leave !
I know how you feel – waking up every few hours for days on end – no sleep and the pain ! It’s horrible !

You're such an inspirational and strong woman. So sorry you're going through this, it's a horrible disease. I have lupus nephritis and have been having bad shortness of breath for a month half now and also chest pains. I'm following up with my rheumatologist soon to see what's going on with me. Thank you again for posting about your journey cause now seeing this video I don't feel crazy or anxiety as I have been not knowing what's going on with me. Hope all is well. Stay strong, Heather
