What can brain lesion and white matter changes mean in Sjögren's and lupus.numbness,confusion,tremor,headache,off balance,weakness,brain fog,brainzaps?

See your neurologist: Without looking at your actual brain scan, it's impossible to tell with certainty the cause or significance of an abnormality. Lupus cerebritis can put white spots on the brain.

With lupus my last blood work stated h RDW & l GFR with tremors down my r side with tingling should this be a big concern to worry about?

With lupus my last blood work stated h RDW & l GFR with tremors down my r side with tingling should this be a big concern to worry about?

Need evaluation: Elevated RDW is not that big a deal, as long as your hemoglobin level is normal. Low GFR is of concern in a person with lupus, as it is an indication of kidney disease. You need to be evaluated further to assess the extent of kidney disease as well as the symptoms you mentioned. I trust that you are under the care of a doctor and you should discuss all of this with her/him. ...Read more

Have lupus and now I am having tremors. Been told it's parkinsonism but could turn into Parkinson's is that true? Any idea how this effects my life?

Lupus is an autoimmune disease while pd is neurodegenerative. Doesn't mean you are protected from acquiring pd in the future but if you do be sure it was not due to the lupus. ...Read more

How to tell if I have t1 diabetes, lupus and m.S at age 17?

How to tell if I have t1 diabetes, lupus and m.S at age 17?

Not likely: Why worry about 3 disorders, as you likely possess one unifying diagnosis to explain your problems. A good place to start is with an endocrinologist to deal with diabetes and the complications secondary to this. Focus on these issues, and later, if things seem peculiar look into co-morbities. Lastly, if you possess diabetes and lupus, doubt you have ms in addition. ...Read more
