hi shepard girl,
i know migraines run with lupus, and i know once i had one so bad that lasted for so long, i ended up in ER getting an IV for relief. I have had them so bad that my meds would not work, and it is such a difficult symptom to deal with.
the fingernail issues could be due to some of the meds, but not sure. I have gone through periods of time where my nails were very weak and brittle, and then it seems to pass. Do you take calcium tablets each day, my dr. has me on 2 tablets (with vit. d) each day. I think this might help with nails.
sorry your head is hurting so bad, hope you find some way to get relief from the pain.
