Pages: 1 Showing 1 - 20 of 25 for kidney dizziness. (0.006 seconds)


... I have personally suffered from dizziness from the get go - and I was diagnosed back in Dec. of last year with SLE, then two weeks later Lupus Nephritis IV. I'm on prednisone, and quite a few other meds as well. Was on chemo for 5 months but had to change to another regimen due to complications from the chemo. Almost every time I stand up I get a dizzy spell with tunnel... (6 replies)

... Topsy, Hi. Have you read the "sticky posts" = the permanent posts at the top of the thread list? Look there for lists of how lupus is Dx'ed, lupus symptoms, a so-called "alternative criteria" list for lupus developed by one of the top rheumies in the world, and for APS ( = antiphospholipid syndrome, which is a clotting disorder seen in lupus or seen "standalone"). Have... (6 replies)

... Topsy123, Dizziness was a real problem for me for several years prior to diagnosis. I would get so dizzy at times that I would have to pull my car off to the side of the road, or if I was home I would make my way as quickly as possible to the sofa or bed until they would pass.....and they didn't last long, but they were aweful when they came on. Hope you get some answers... (6 replies)

... Hi, it's Vee again. High platelet counts: I've read this can happen "simply" due to chronic inflammation. Have you ever been tested for antiphospholipid syndrome (APS)? FYI, I don't mean to scare you! I have no idea whether what you described is even in the ballpark of APS---only that it can't hurt to ask. You mention a "T&A" when you were 12. I don't know what that... (2 replies)
... ne thing that has been in the back of my mind, wondering why the dr. hasn't tested my urine since this all began.

... Hello, I'm familiar with all you've just spoke about and believe you yourself have come to a reasonable possible diagnosis. I personally think because of rash on toes and other places with all your other symptoms that although rare Polymyositis or Detmatomyositis should be concidered. You've already shown to have some of the positive test results for this disease. There's a... (34 replies)

... Dear GracieGirl, I am SOOOOOOO curious about the rash on your back. I have a subset of lupus = SCLE. It's MAIN ("characteristic") rash is different than BOTH "discoid" and "malar". The rash can be anywhere but typically favors the upper torso (upper back, upper chest, and upper arms). The rash can look like a small raised disc in early stages, then later turn into big...

... A little immunofluorescence here and there but not convincing enough for a diagnosis.''Also, my kidney creatinine in 24 hour urine was low, so my kidneys are not functioning very well, and blood creatinine is on the upper limit. ... (16 replies)
... momof6300, I think staying sharp but calm will help. You could check out hardcovers on lupus & its close cousins from your local library. Two books by top rheumatologists helped me understand the dividing line in lupus (and in its close cousins) between "subacute" and "acute". What that means: having painful joints, fogginess, dizziness, etc. STINKS, yet patients are lucky to... (5 replies)
