I suddenly developed severe central nervous system symptoms after surgery and repair with titanium plates and screws to repair 2 fractured bones in my ankle last year. Cerebral MRI report which followed stated several areas of what appeared to be small vessel vasculitis. Previous issues with Lupus/sjogrens/polymyositis treated with steroids, however severe dizziness, memory problems, and cognitive issues are all new, debilatating, and frightening. My C-reative protein also spiked 4x higher than normal. I fear this will not clear up unless hardware is removed since everytime I try to lower Prednisone dose (that does help) , these symptoms either come back or get worse. All comments and experiences from others appreciated.
