I have been having severe migraines for the past 4 months. I have been tentivily diagnosed with Lupus by my pcp, but my RA doc, still has not, because my bloodwork is all over the place. The last two years, my blood work either comes back positive, or equivical. my PCP has seen me broke out, swollen and has consistantly said I have the disease. My mother passed away from lupus. I have had a kidney biopsey, also. My question is, everytime I have a flare-up, i get a massive migraine, and it usually results in a er trip. I've been to the ER twice this week. I had a CT scan with no dye, because I'm allergic. Said that my brain was swollen,(because of my migraine), but didn't seem to have abnormalties. I am on Sumatriptan, but it does not help, most of the time. I drink plenty of water, have no caffine, and try to do breathing exercises. nothing seems to work. Should I be seeing a neurologist by now?View Thread
Thankyou so much for your reply, I was just back In the ER Monday night. This time I was in there for 4 hours because of my migraine with vomiting. My blood pressure was 190 over 154. The ER doc said I was on the verge of a stroke. I contacted my pcp, and I can't get into see a neurlogist for 6 weeks........I hope I can last that long.View Thread
