    No idea. They said everything and they had already drugged me by then. I will go down in a couple of days and get all the reports for my file so I will know then. She did say that my inflammation levels were normal but I don't know if they only checked my SED rate or if they did my CRP. My inflammation only shows up in my CRP and it is usually sky high

    I'm glad to hear that you got yourself checked out. Do you have a history of migraines or sinus infections? I usually get a migraine slightly before or at the beginning of a sinus. Just a thought.

    I get migraines also but have recently been getting headaches like you just described! Mine come every month so i'm assuming it has something to do with pms..anyone else have this and does anything help?

    Mine turned out to be trigeminal neuralgia (TN). It is a pain I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. I do know that many headaches, what they call "Lupus Headaches" are brought on by the menstrual cycle. TN is more in the face then the head although mine starts in the head and in less then a second runs down the center of my face. Nasty nasty thing!
