Just Lupus continuing to attack my CNS! Gave me iv Solumedrol?(spelling??) I also have bladder infection. Just frustrated. still numb everywhere!

    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!

    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.

    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?
