I am hoping someone might be able to help as I am confused about this - which is not hard even on a good day lol. I went to see my rheumy doc this week and she has requested an urgent MRI for possible cerebral vasculitis?
My ANA Screen has jumped high and I have no signs of the lupus affecting my kidneys, but she is worried about my head. I am having a lot of problems with lupus fog - I forget everything, having a lot of dizzy spells, I get frequent migraines, forget what I am saying mid sentence (which is really embarrassing), I am confused a lot. I can't have a decent chat with anyone coz i can't concentrate on what people are saying - people must think I'm ignorant. I feel like I get a popping sensation in my head that does hurt at times.
I keep getting a weird feeling like I am going to pass out, which is scary. It feels like the room is floating and I sometimes get double vision. I feel like I have a lot of pressure behind my right eye. I also have started twitching when I am really tired - I didn't even notice it at first - my mum and daughter told me that I do it. I have mood swings (low mood a lot) and like all lupus suffers I am completely shattered all the time.
Does this sound familiar to anyone??? I just thought that all this was because I am tired, but the doc is worried about my high ANA. I don't know what to think ?
Sorry to moan but I don't really understand this cerebral part of it all. I hope this all makes sense. If anyone could help I would be grateful
Lupie hugs and love to u all
