Weird episode...can anyone relate?
Hi there. Not dx yet but have been trying since sept to get answers. Im just wondering if anyone experiences a red rash..flat similar to sunburn from fluorescent lighting on their body? Mine happens on my face, arms and chest really whatever is exposed which is normally those areas.
I also had an episode a few nights ago. My bf and I were sharing an intimate moment to put it nicely and all of a sudden I broke out into a sweat and felt "off" like something was wrong. Seconds after my heart was racing, I was breathing heavy and hard, I was sweating profusely and couldn't control my body...it was shaking and I was getting chills. At first my bf said I felt hot but I quickly turned cold and clammy feeling. The only other experience similar to this was a week before when I was sick with I guess a stomach bug and was feeling nauseas. I got dizzy standing up and started blacking out. When I hit the floor I broke out into a sweat similar to the one mentioned earlier but it wasn't as bad and quickly subsided when the dizziness went away. I didn't feel any dizziness with the other experience but I was out of it some. I have a fasting glucose of 72 so my dr said mine can drop into the 50s and 60s sometimes. We checked my sugar anyway and it was 98. Anybody know what this could have been? I just chalked it up to hormones in lupus? Thanks and take care. -Brit
