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

There are medications that can help the symptoms and your doctor will help you try different ones to see which help the best right now.

Can lupus cause persistent nausea and stomach dumping?

Can lupus cause persistent nausea and stomach dumping?

Unlikely: Lupus is basically a form of "vasculitis" which affects small blood vessels such as those in the kidneys, joints (arthritis) and skin! The GI tract is generally unaffected! The MEDICATIONS used to TREAT Lupus are another story! Most of them have mild-moderate GI effects!
Speak with your Rheumatologist! (If you have not seen one you should!!! 0

Chest pain for1 week-tightness in chest was periodic and now constant. Had echo stress-test, no blockage. Have lupus, now chills, no fever, now what?

Many causes: Could still have coronary artery disease depending on the pattern although not typical. You describe a now constant pain with a normal stress test in patient with lupus- would definitely consider pericarditis (not unusual in lupus). Also can consider noncardiac etiologies- musculoskeletal cauuses such as costochondritis, or GI causes such as esophagitis, gastritis, peptic ulcer, etc. ...Read more

In context of cryofibrinogenemia, lupus-type ctd and adrenal insufficiency, what could cause increase in GI symptoms, nausea, and vomiting with adrenal crisis, when estrogen/progestin drugs are taken?

In context of cryofibrinogenemia, lupus-type ctd and adrenal insufficiency, what could cause increase in GI symptoms, nausea, and vomiting with adrenal crisis, when estrogen/progestin drugs are taken?

Cortisol deficiency: With true adrenal insufficiency diagnosed by an endocrinologist, one would need to be taking cortisol replacement therapy. Nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting and weight loss are classic symptoms of adrenal insufficiency which estrogen and Progesterone replacement don't address. Many with primary adrenal insufficiency also look like they have a deep tan. ...Read more

Had tight chest, dizziness, nausea, fatigue etc for 2 months...Some dysautonomia. Bloods normal except ANA of 1:320 speckled, lupus tests neg. Ideas?

Ganglionopathy?: This could be due to autoimmune ganglionopathy which is inflammation of the autonomic ganglia. This may occur following a viral infection or in association with an underlying connective tissue disease such as lupus which may or may not fully manifest itself. You need autonomic testing and anti-neuronal antibodies for evaluation. The condition is treatable with steroids and immunosuppression. ...Read more

I have a 1:160 homogenous ana, negative ANA reflex cascade. I have a face rash, chills, joint pain, raynaud's but I also tested positive for parvo. Could negative reflex cascade mean no lupus?

Lupus very possible: The symptoms you describe make lupus a distinct possibility. Often the ANA is the only positive autoantibody in patients with lupus. Many people believe the parvo test is positive when it really means previous exposure and not active disease. Was the igm portion positive or just the igg parvo? ...Read more

Why do I feel nauseous, have chills, and have gas after running a half marathon?

Why do I feel nauseous, have chills, and have gas after running a half marathon?

Dehydration, heat: Make sure you drink enough during marathons, and as well take adequate "electrolytes" (salt). Dress lightly, make sure your clothing is well ventilated, avoid occlusive clothing. E.G. Visor hat is better than a hat that closes off evaporation. Humans were designed without clothing, and when you are hot and exerting, try to get back as close to that natural state. Spray water, evaporation cools. ...Read more

Infection: You really need to see a tropical disease clinic in your area.

Both these infections have developed resistance and that may be the issue. Suggest see a physician at the local university hospital. ...Read more

Are you asking us to: Tell you it isn't a horse if looks like a horse, trots like horse, rides like a horse etc? You are likely making your own anxiety worse by insisting on knowing if there is even the tiniest chance it is a zebra, mule or donkey.
