Hi I was diagnosed with lupus in November last year . I have been getting headaches which may be due to the brain tumour I also have, however have been feeling awful. My ankles are swollen and I constantly feel bloated with marked weight gain and my GP says I have high blood pressure! My blood pressure has never been a problem before! I feel as if I am retaining fluid. Could it be due to lupus attacking my kidneys ? I am due to get bloods done on Monday. Any ideas from fellow lupies?
