I am having extreme vertigo and get nausea and my arms will feel firey hot. Is this familiar to any of you? Thanks.

  1. That sounds both frustrating and challenging.
    As you are probably aware, lupus symptoms can be very different from person to person.
    Many of the symptoms of lupus can be vague and non-specific,. I do hope others will chime in with their personal experiences.

    1. Hi Possi1, I get vertigo often (although, I chalk it up to be mostly a side effect of my chronic pain meds) and when I do I am very deliberate with my movements. I also make sure that I am drinking lots of water. I do not know why, but whenever I am having a new issue I drink water - I feel like it is the one thing I can control.

      1. , I like that! And hey, drinking water is a good thing. 😀

    2. , I rarely have nausea (though I do have GERD) and would relate that to meds if I did. I've never experienced what must be that awful arm-burning feeling! But I do get vertigo sometimes. The worst experiences have been related to meds, and I attribute the others to issues like blood pressure and fatigue and try to treat accordingly. I do hope you can get a handle on what's going on with these!

      1. , thank you for chiming in here. It always makes sense to check those lists of potential side effects of medications. Anytime a new issue pops up for my husband (he's on a few meds), we always check the side effects first.

        Thanks again for sharing!

    3. Yes !!! Vertigo is extreme these last couple months I had to get medication for it antivert and nausea is daily sometimes its bareable other times I can barely mouth because of the fear of throwing up my mouth starts to water I have to tale medication and lay down infront of a fan. It's horrible. I'm not sure if the vertigo is related to lupus or not. What's really frustrating is all my dr like to blame different dx so it's really not being taken care of other than medication but we aren't finding the root cause. I'm sorry you are dealing with this also.

      1. That must be so difficult. I'm sure you would like to find some relief (and answers).
