Has anyone had experience with allergy immunotherapy injections acting as a trigger for lupus flares? I was just diagnosed with lupus although I have had symptoms at least 2 years. I am finding that the allergy shots are a triggering event with increase in symptoms 24 to 26 hours after injection. My doctor didn't think it's connected, but I am stopping the allergy immunotherapy.
I had an injection 2 days ago, and 24 hours later increased pain/ swelling of fingers, increased rib pain, fatigue and brain fog.View Thread
Have you tried migraine treatment medications for lupus headaches? I use maxalt 10 mg tablets. The majority of the time the headache resolves. If having a shower of headaches with lupus a pulse of prednisone clears the headache activity too. If lupus is causing a vascular headache usually conventional treatment for migraine will improve the headache. I hope this helps.View Thread
