    Have you suffered from migraines? If not, then the answer is cautiously yes. Lupus as well as MS can sometimes cause spots on the brain due to Central Nervous System involvement of the diseases. It could also be the result of a mini stroke (also common in Lupus).
    At this point, any answers without more tests would probably scare you and we do not want to do that! Please let us know what your doctors decide to do and what they find. Best of Luck

    Peace and Blessings

    Thank you. Saysusie. I had a headache-migrane at one point for 1 and half years 24hours a day, but the Dr. just said probably stress, and did not go any further. It left mysteriously as it came! weird. lol

    Interesting.. I had an MRI done about two months ago and I showed a small white spot on my frontal lobe-- caused my migraines (or so they think)-- how big was it and where was it located?

    Hi Kathy!!!!

    OMG! sorry about the spot! My neuro just showed me my brain the other day from my MRI and she said a spot is something to watch and follow up on.. If MS is in your family its definately something to stay on top of! She told me that is what they really keep an eye out for with autoimmune diseases. I hope you find out soon and please let us know how it goes. You are always in my thoughts! HUGS XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    HMMMM, Im not sure Heidi cuz she did diagnose me with migrains but i didnt have any spots. She said they might appear JUST DURING a migrain. Im on meds for them but theyre not working well. She has me charting my progress w the meds and honestly its made me worse at times. UGH I go back in 2 wks. I would have them investigate further because she said she would be digging deeper w more tests if any spots were there. Good Luck!

    Yes, 40 is quite young! Its better for you to stay on top of things just for that reason alone! I hope all works out for you and its good to know that family history!
