Hope you're all having a good day ❤️
Does anyone here have any insight into the kinds of neuropsych symptoms rheumatologists would find relevant? I have had lots of anxiety and depression problems since adolescence. There have been 3 suicide attempts.
I recall seeing a question re: suicide in the medical history section of the paperwork for the 1 rheumatologist I saw. I chose not to answer until I got to meet the dr. I was glad I didn't tell him bc he was a grade A douche and I'm sure he would have listened to me even less (if that's possible). But then I think, I should have shared bc it could be relevant. But what do I know?
Can NPSLE come on in adolescence and cause things such as anxiety, impulsivity, depression, and emotional dysregulation? SSRIs haven't really worked.
What I've read of NPSLE discusses mainly psychosis, seizures, and stroke. I've definitely had tingling/numb forearms/hand & lower leg/feet. Don't know if that is of an orthopedic origin.
But anyhoo, any thoughts would be appreciated 😊
