Hi Everyone, this is my first post although I have been reading for a while now, I was diagnosed about 4 years ago, I take HCQ, thyroxine, amitryptyline and tramadol for the pain, It is quite well managed but lately I have been feeling quite unwell and very tired and headachy. My blood pressure is through the roof 204/120, the lowest it has been this week is 153/120. i am being sent for more blood tests and being told to "chillax" (I am not really tense or under pressure at all !).
My question is , is this something that is common with lupus? Something else that I have notice, if you will excuse my corseness, is that my pee is really smelly.
Thanks for any light you can shed on this.
