My friend has lupus diagnosed 5-6 years ago. It is
may be possibly related to lupus
hi these symptoms dont seem to corelate with lupus.
however sometimes autonomic nervous system involvement may be part of the neuropsychiatric symptoms associated with lupus.
however the management of the same is pretty much symptomatic and we dont require to step up the medication that we are giving for SLE.
so my advise would be to take antacid or some OTC medication for the GI complaints and for the flushing low dose medication with duloxetine /gabapentin may be taken, these should take care of the above complaints.
What if the vomiting and sweats are unrelated, just considering the sweats alone what besides anxiety could be causing this. (She is not an anxious person)
Assuming that this is not caused by anxiety can you tell me what diseases may be characterized by periods sudden but brief episodes of sweating? The gynecologist has ruled out menopause because during her episodes which may last 5 minutes, her body temperature may increase to 101-102 degrees. Is there anything endocrinological?
How do we rule out that she might be contagious and therefore not a threat to patients in the hospital?
