See your doctor: Symptoms and concerns like these mandate a thorough evaluation by your doctor. Only after such an evaluation, which may include labs and radiographic examinations, can he/she let you know what's going on and how best to help you.

See below: If you have lupus, i would be concerned about seizure or it could be a side effect from zofran (ondansetron) that you are taking. See your rheumatologist.
