Dx = biopsy or...: You cannot determine to cause of lymph nodes without a clinical context (eg, they resolve on own or are enlarged from infection) or a lymph node biopsy.

My son-in-law has lupus and he gets extreme discomfort in the neck and head. It feels like fluid. Is there any way to relieve that pain?

My son-in-law has lupus and he gets extreme discomfort in the neck and head. It feels like fluid. Is there any way to relieve that pain?

Who feels fluid?: Do you mean you feel his head and neck and you feel something like fluid and swelling, or he feels like there is fluid inside his head? Lupus can cause a lot of funny symptoms--his doctor can suggest something to help. If he has actual swelling, he needs to be checked. ...Read more

I have lupus and scleroderma and now I'm being tested for osteonucrosis but it doesn't explain the pain I have everyday in my head, neck and back.

I have lupus and scleroderma and now I'm being tested for osteonucrosis but it doesn't explain the pain I have everyday in  my head, neck and back.

See ortho: I presume you are already under the care of a rheumatologist. If you cannot get an answer from him, either get a 2nd opinion or consult an orthopedist. Having autoimmune disorders does not preclude you from getting the usually bone issues. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: Lupus patients may get infections (because their immune systems are not working properly), and they can get vasculitis (their immune systems cause damage to their blood vessels). That means symptoms such as worrisome headaches need to be evaluated by a doctor, to see if there is something being caused or worsened by the lupus. ...Read more

Chronic/Acute?: An oft neglected challenge of chronic conditions is the tendency to ignore a new, acute symptom or change. Whenever a change in your expected pattern of chronic symptoms appears, always inform your doctor - even if only for the record. And, it's the way to 'nip in the bud' any new, hopefully transient, thing. ...Read more

Dx w/lupus almost 2 years ago. I have a painful sensation on left side of head that get chills on same spot. Any ideas?

Peripheral neuritis: Tori, this may or may not relate to the lupus. Lots of people have little sensitive places on the skin that can at times be painful and at times can tingle or feel like it's getting goosebumps or even go numb. Of course if the pain is very severe or there are other symptoms like visual problems or slurred speech or nausea you should discuss with your doctor. You can try rubbing the spot. ...Read more
