    My mom had Temporal Arteritis back in the late 70's...and they gave her prednisone which I don't know if that is the norm now.....she gained like 100lbs while on it.

    I have headaches and feels like it is in my ear and in the jaw also....I thought it was my ear.

    I didn't know that this was one of the Lupus things. When I get back to a doc I will mention it.

    I'm glad I saw this thread.

    Hi Mortified,

    My Lupus is like this little army of nomads that just keeps moving around and attacking things. Some days, it's almost like I can feel the inflammation moving around, it's weird, but that's Lupus.

    Phyllis, scotch works for me too! Glenfiddich Single Malt is my poison.

    Hi Mortified,

    My ears are very sensitive to outside influences, such as loud music, the wind, and shouting. They used to not be so sensitive before the lupus.

    I forgot to add that my ENT also told me that some of the meds that are frequently taken by lupus patients also can make your ears sensitive. I know that long term use of pain meds was definately on his list. I do not remember all the others he mentioned but I can certainly call and ask him to explain it to me again!!

    hi froggal,

    that is really interesting...i have not heard that before, but makes sense. yes, if you don't mind, i would like for you to get additional information on sensitive ears and pain meds....sometimes my ears are so sensitive, i can hardly stand normal noises.
