I am still under investigation but rheumatologist has said likely that I have SLE. Developed tiredness earlier in year, followed by skin rash (urticarial vasculitis), then fevers/chills, joint and muscle pain and shooting pains.

I also have intermittent painful lumps on my head - is this common?
Yesterday I had terrible dizziness - could this be lupus related? It has gone mow but left me with a headache.

Any ideas?

Hi Lynne :)

I'm not sure from your description but is it possible that the lumps are swollen lymph nodes at on the back of your head? I used to get these very regularly and they were indeed very painful.

Dizziness can be caused by so many things including simple exhaustion but it is something, along with the lumps, that needs noting on your symptoms list and mentioning to your doctor.

Hi - thanks for your replies.
Lumps are hard and painful and occur on my scalp in random places - don't think swollen glands - not sure if part of urticarial vasculitis.

Hi, I suffer from vertigo and a few others suffer from dizziness. As Katherine said it can have many causes, so if it persists, it is best to get it checked by a doc.
