Our Topic of the Month discussion for February is 'Headaches & Migraines'.
Headaches are common in lupus. They may be a feature of the disease itself or they can be associated with a clotting disorder; antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). They may or may not have a migrainous element with flashing lights and visual disturbances.
We want to hear if you have any tips for coping with headaches and migraines if you have lupus. Have you identified any triggers which you can avoid to prevent headaches? Have any lifestyle adjustments helped you manage better? How do you look after yourself when you are experiencing a headache/migraine?
We would like to hear all of your tips and experiences (good and bad) and we’ll compile them towards the end of the month for an article. Please share in the comments section below, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The article itself will be posted on the LUPUS UK Blog at
All submissions will be anonymised.
