Do severe mulitple day migranes with nausea and dizzyness have to. Deal. With my lupus or my predieabetes?

No.: They are separate entities, but regular headaches can be a symptom of lupus. Migraines are a special type of headache that are treated differently.

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.

Lupus treatment: Don't panic! Most people with lupus live full, active lives. Your temperature is normal. 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. You need a good working relationship with a doctor who treats lupus regularly. This is usually a rheumatologist, but not always. See your doctor! Think yourself well!

I've had a severe headache coupled with occasional dizziness and nausea for 17 days. Also symptoms elsewhere...Chances of lupus?

I've had a severe headache coupled with occasional dizziness and nausea for 17 days. Also symptoms elsewhere...Chances of lupus?

Not: Typical initial symptoms of lupus. Is you headache on one side and pounding? Does light or sound make it worse? You may be in a bad cycle of migraines. Relax. Does not sound anything like lupus!

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 Hope this helps Good Luck Dr Z

Nausea, upper abd pain x4months. Eat well, not overweight, no NSAIDs. Priloec didn't help. EGD showed inflammation. Waiting biopsies. Have lupus. Biopsy why?

Need more informatio: A biopsy is done to make certain there is no tumor or other side effect. Lupus would be unusual because of your symptoms and findings. We need to know more about your medications and your general medical health.

What to expect while on methotrexate for lupus? Lots of nausea that day? Also I heart it causes fatigue at first? Any weight gain?

What to expect while on methotrexate for lupus? Lots of nausea that day? Also I heart it causes fatigue at first? Any weight gain?

Some: No weight gain with Methotrexate but nausea and fatigue can occur in a minority of patients. If they do occur, tell your doctor as the symptoms might be timing or dose related and adjustments can be made. Do not be discouraged. Your doctor is thinking of medicines to aggressively control your condition.

Gnawing upper&nausea abd pain x6 months. EGD =mild patchy gastric erythema. Otherwise normal. Waiting biopsy. I have lupus. Not on NSAIDs. Possible causes?

Gnawing upper&nausea abd pain x6 months. EGD =mild patchy gastric erythema. Otherwise normal. Waiting biopsy. I have lupus. Not on NSAIDs. Possible causes?

WaitForBiopsyReport: Pain in upper abdomen associated with nausea can be drom Chronic Gastritis, Peptic Ulcer Disease as well from gall bladder conditions. The endoscopy showed mild patchy gastric erythema which suggest gastritis. You have to wait for biopsy and H PYLORI test report. Treatment if h pylori negative will consist of acid suppression. Follow up with your GI Doctor

Intermittent armpit & groin pain (increasing in intensity), fatigue, night sweats, nausea. Could this be part of my lupus? Haven't had this before.

Possible: Lupus can present itself in so many ways, one probably needs to consider it guilty until proven otherwise. I would recommend that you call your rheumatologist ASAP.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Dehydration: If you are unable to keep down any liquids or you are having more than 4 watery stools an hour, chills, fatigue, then it might not be a bad idea to consider presenting to an urgent care for IV fluids.
