I am having really awful symptoms of vertigo at the moment, whenever I move my eyes left or right it sets of a spinning sensation, and even when I am lying still i feel like I'm on a boat. When I walk I often stagger like a drunk person. It's lasted for a month already and it's accompanied by brain fog (difficulty concentrating, forgetfulness, hard to finish a sentence at times) and some nausea and the usual aches and pains. I seem to be OK mentally when I'm with company (family & close friends) but when alone my thoughts seem to quickly degenerate into a negative place, with voices telling me nasty things about myself. I try to ignore them and I find meditation helpful. I occasionally get restless hands and feet too.
My Rhuematologist has referred me to a Neurologist.
Has anyone also suffered from vertigo and then had a diagnosis of 'CNS lupus' or something like that? I know lupus can affect the brain so is this one of the neurological symptoms? The Lupus UK info sheet about brain fog doesn't mention dizziness or vertigo.
