I'm going to repost this (I had it on the end of the swelling post)
I walked yesterday in the sun (though it is only 50 degrees here still) I felt so crummy afterwards. Like my whole insides was puffy, I was disoriented, my head felt puffy, I felt taller than I am - is that wierd? My right had - wich has given me some trouble - went numb and non responsive - I couldn't get it to type or roll the mouse, it took about an hour of concentrating to get it functional and it is still sluggish and painful. My left hand is a bit of the same but not as bad.
I can't think clearly. I'm so TIRED.
Could this event have been a mini stroke? I think it is a sun reaction because it has happened before but not this dramatic - always after I've been outside. I'm really sick of running to the Dr all the time - has any of you had a real TIA give me some input. I didn't fall over or drool or anything...
I assume a lupus sun reaction is a skin rash, can it be like this too?
