    these researchers obviously never asked my opinion.
    headaches are a daily occurrence for me, and almost everyone i know who has lupus.

    it is the severity of the headache that varies, ..... not how often we have them.
    my best day is a "mild" feeling ..... but it is still not totally headache free.
    When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.

    I agree with Steve- besides the cause of my headache be it lupus or side effect of meds doesn't change the fact that I have a dull mild headache all the time and frequently more intense headache pain.

    This article calls SLE "system" Lupus Erythematosis.

    I cannot accept the opinions put forth in an article who's author does not even know the difference between the words system, and systemic.

    Last I checked, I have Systemic Lupus Erythematosis.

    The person who wrote this article cannot even properly name the condition they are talking about. Basic mistakes like this make me question the credibility of those who wrote this article.
