I posted earlier in SLE forum I had CNS problems from Lupus. Today I have numb leftsided face, arm, leg, and BP on medicines was 149/104. So they made me go to ER. WASNT A STROKE!! Just Lupus continuing to attack my CNS! Gave me iv Solumedrol?(spelling??) I also have bladder infection. Just frustrated. still numb everywhere!:no:

Yikes! So glad it wasn't a stroke, but your BP was way too high-especially being on meds. Good thing you went to ER. Too bad about the bladder infection-they are downright miserable.

Hope you're feeling better soon!

Thank you! BonusMom! Thats nice of you! My numbness is spreading! Kinda freaky.

yuk kat,

so sorry to hear about the BP, numbness, and the CNS. lupus is the most devasting disease that i have ever seen.

spending the day in the ER had to be frustrating.

hope you get a good nights rest.

sick n tired

I've had cns problems too, with symptoms like yours. It's scary as hell. I'm so glad it wasn't a stroke Kat. Does your rheumo/neuro have any sort of plan for treating this?

Thanks Girls and guy! SO NICE. My neuro is out of town till thursday. All I know is that one day of solumedrol iv didnt do anything! Thanks again
