bridge nose pressure / ache

Hi

I have this pressure / burn on my bridge nose for 4 weeks now... Always there; at night, if i wake up I feel it. Not that much in the morning but gets worse during the day.

I felt it first time after some sessions of bitter crying :-( It came and went, afterwards became permanent...

I wonder if this is to do with lupus. I am taking prednisolone but did not do any good or bad to my nose huge discomfort. I keep monitoring my nose and I think there are 2 symmetrical patches of shinier skin on both sides of my nose (but only I can see it from a certain angle)

Does anyone have any idea what this can be?

Should I report it to my rheumatologist?

Many thanks

Daniela

Hi, there is no harm in mentioning your concerns to your rheumatologist next time you go. They may have heard of this before and put your mind at rest. I am not sure what it could be and it is difficult to say without seeing it. I have what they call the butterfly rash across the face - it could be that.

Best wishes to you and hope you get some answers.

Yols
