Good day
Lupus can cause damage to the blood vessels in the brain leading to vertigo and cerebellar ataxia. It may be the reason why you feel wobbly. Your blood sugar is almost near the lower side. It can also cause vertigo if hypoglycemia sets in. Have some food to eat and drink 1-2 glasses of water. If you feel feverish it can be an infection causing all these symptoms put together which will worsen with Lupus. Please go with someone's help to the ER right way.
