Hi Heidi,
I think I might know what you mean. I have the Hughes and Lupus - and have had strange type sensations on my head and strange headaches too sometimes. The neurologist said some of the sharp quick ones are called ice pick headaches, they last a short time but are really painful. I guess it's a type of migraine. But the weird sensations that I get are kinda numby crawly feeling. I hate them, but don't know what causes them...

I woke up this morning with a bad headache. They are the pits, and I am sorry you are suffering with them too. I have been taking Flonase which has steroids in it according to my allergist. I thought that the headache was a sinus one, as my nasal passages were stopped up, like they usually are before I put the drops in my nose, but now I am wondering if the steroids in the drops might be a side effect of the Flonase. Does anyone out there know if headaches are one of the side effects of steroids?
