    Can Lupus make you violently sick? I went to the ER last night with uncontrollable vomiting. CT scan of kidneys and EKG didn't show anything. I was diagnosed in October. Kidney function is down to 44% and I have a low white blood count. Thanks!

    Lupus can cause gastrointestinal disorders. In fact, many with Lupus also have Crohn's disease, gastritis, and celiac disease as an overlapping illness. All of these diseases can cause vomiting. Many of us also have IBS, but that occurs mostly in those of us who have Lupus and Fibromyalgia. I would suggest that you contact your physician and make him aware of this as soon as you can.
    If your vomiting is accompanied by headaches and muscle spasms, please please see your doctor immediately as this may be a sign of serious Central Nervous System involvement or other serious conditions.
    I hope that I've been helpful. Please let me know if you need something further.

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste

    I have gotten a hold of my primary care doctor as well as my rheumatologist. They are both aware of the issue. No more vomiting but still not very interested in food. I go see my primary doctor on Monday. Thank you for all you do and this wonderful website! The more I think I know the less I really know.

    You are most welcome. Please continue to keep us posted on how you are doing. I'm glad, at least, that you are no longer vomiting. I hope you get some appetite back.

    Peace and Blessings
