No.: There is no relationship between sle/ migraines and lupus. Your symptoms don't have any parkinsonian features. You are at somewhat higher risk of developing pd because of your mother's illness, but this risk is not large.

No: Your symptoms do not sound like parkinson's. Migraine headaches in systemic lupus are very common. Not sure if you have tingling down right arm, leg, face? See a neurologist. It's likely that there is treatment to help your quality of life.
