Lupus?
Jan 6, 2004
I had a red itchy rash on my chest and neck. But then it went away. can the rash come and go like that if it is lupus? Also I get a lot of headaches. And I feel tired a lot and have noticed I have been sleeping a lot more. Sometimes I get this dizzy feeling in my head but it just last for a second. And right now I have a sore on my mouth right in the corner on the left side. It's been there for like a week. Are these signs of lupus or something else? Also some of my hair comes out in the shower and I notice even my scalp itches a lot. Is that signs too? I've just been trying to figure out what is wrong with me. I went to the doctor once and they just said I had an infection in my spleen.

I would definitely call your Doctor; especially with the onset of symptoms. I have had both the facial rash and discoid rashes (usually the discoid rashes I would get after exposure to the sun -- before I knew I had lupus, and needed to stay covered up in the sun). With my initial onset of symptoms I was exhausted all the time and had on and off vertigo. Call your Doctor, in addition to looking at all your present symptoms and past medical history, it would be a good idea to have complete bloodwork done. My thoughts are with you. I hope you get some relief very soon.
