Finger swelling
Mar 2, 2014
... This type of inflammation is common in lupus, particularly the periungual redness and swelling (below and around the base of nail). It would be good to see a rheumatologist and take these pictures with you. The heat is from the inflammation, and being seen during one of these episodes would be the best time to get evaluated.

Finger swelling
Mar 1, 2014
... octor to start with, as I'm not sure what is going on with me. Was hoping maybe someone could give me some input on whether this looks like it could be a sign of lupus or not.

... I'd also want to see your urinalysis results, to see if there's anything there that warrants seeing a nephrologist. Also, I'm wondering if the swelling in your right kidney ALONE is enough to justify seeing a nephrologist? ... (32 replies)
... You indeed have many symptoms of lupus and pericarditis is one of the more serious symptoms/complications of lupus, so I'm not sure what all the hesitation is about. Have you had anti-dsDNA tested, or any evidence of anemia, low white cells on CBC? Any protein or blood in urine? Have you been tested for anti-phospholipid syndrome, a clotting disorder often present in lupus? I... (32 replies)
Birth Control
Jan 23, 2014
... Your symptoms may be related to rises in your own estrogen levels prior to your period, which is common. It may be better on birth control, which evens out the estrogen through the month, as long as it is a pill that is the same formula each day. I would just make sure that you do not have antiphospholipid antibody syndrome before going on the pill, as the combination could... (1 replies)

... Thanks for your reply Vee! Sorry about your cold. :( Strangely enough, the swollen feeling went away after about 12 hours. My head still feels a little funny, but it looks like it might have been the Plaquenil, which isn't good because it was helping me. I'm going to call my doctor this morning to see how to proceed. For the benefit of others reading, I just wanted to... (6 replies)
... Hi. My Plaquenil Rx printout mentions drowsiness & ear ringing as possible side effects, but not anything that looks quite like the sensation of scalp swelling. But I'll mention that I'm now battling the oddest head cold I've ever had. It's odd because it took really long---8 days---of puffy sinuses, ear ringing & a slight problem with balance plus that "pumpkin head"... (6 replies)

Lupus and Choking
Oct 15, 2013
... helped the lump shrink. It felt like I was still swallowing mucus, though no longer enough to choke on, but if the lump went away, then it seems like it must be swelling at this point. Since I'm now down to 10 mg. of prednisone, I wonder if that's part of the problem because it's not controlling the inflammation. ... (5 replies)
