    I now turn my music down. I always played it loud. I hear ringing and static too often.

    Part of it can be.

    But yeh, this is me at times and yesterday was one of those times. When there is more than one convo going on at the same time my head seems to want to explode. It happened at work yesterday and I was rather terse with a co-worker about it. For me it's too much external stimulation or whatever.

    DH is soft spoken so it,s difficult to hear him. Then, throw a blaring TV in to the mix and you've got a recipe for disaster.

    I get REALLY frustrated because he's convinced he told me something and I KNOW he didn't. (Like office gossipXi don't forget that stuff) and he insists that I just forgot. No, Buckwheat, I may have forgotten to get milk at the store, but I don't forget his work stuff-because he rarely indulges me in the first place

    At work, I definitely have mantalpause!

    Between test firing guns and blowing things up for a living, and standing in front of the speaker stack at one too many Van Halen concerts, I no longer have that problem. I just smile and nod a lot. Silence can be bliss.

    I used to argue that I was not told things but now I know I most likely was. We keep a white board in the kitchen/dining area (looks fab LOL) so things can be written down for me. Sadly I will see things on the board and still not remember being told. I went through surgical menopause 16 years ago so my mental issues are not from that (although some would argue that I have always had mental issues LOL)

I dont have fibro though, not that i have been diagnosed with anyway. Im really sick of having new things so fibro can leave me alone :P

    Thank you for the info Steve : ) and thank you everyone for your replies!
    Giggle,

    I know we're a few miles away mate.lol but come and tell my husband when he's shutting the kitchen doors hard and wants the tele up load when i'm the one sitting by it...i swear to god sometimes they think we're exaggerating. xxx

    3. How common is vertigo and dizziness in NPSLE? Why does it occur? Sausalito, CA

    Vertigo is an uncommon problem in patients with lupus. More often than not it is caused by some other disorder. The frequency of this problem in lupus has not been systematically investigated, but it would appear to be rare. However, definite cases of vertigo, hearing loss, and the combination of both have been reported in those with lupus. Some cases may be caused by vasculitis (inflammation of the arteries which leads to their narrowing which restricts blood flow) or anti-phospholipid antibodies (which predisposes to the formation of blood clots which can also limit blood flow). Others may have antibodies to components of the inner ear which may disrupt its function. SLE is one of several causes of the syndrome which has been called immune mediated inner ear disease (IMIED).

    Thats from 15 questions on the LFA website. It made me think of you because of that last part about the inner ear.
    "A bad cold wouldn't be so annoying if it weren't for the advice of our friends."~ Kin Hubbard

    Diagnosed: SLE, Raynauds, InterstitialLung Disease, GERD, Myositis, Vasculitis, Possible Sjogrens.
    Medications: 400mg Plaquenil, 2000mg Cellcept, 10mg Norvasc, Nitroglycerin Patch, 20mg Prilosec, 10mg Flexeril, 4mg Medrol, 81mg Asprin.
