Brain Fog and Temper

I get bad headaches and forget the smallest things and get so angry for nothing and then do things I never would have done but don't really get help from doctors. I'm a lupus patient. Does anyone else experience this?

  1. the headaches can really take a toll on you . The anger can be normal too. Short fuses from the pain. What medication are you on? That can cause both as well. ~Racquel~ lupus team member

    1. The headaches can be debilitating. Without relief from medication, I tried mindfulness and that helps sometimes. Sometimes nothing helps. I'm in a place right now that my body is allowing me to exercise and that's helped reduce the headaches. Sometimes exercise is not an option, so make this a major point with your doctor. Best wishes on your journey.

      1. great points thanks for that lees. ~Racquel~ lupus team member
