Brief Answer: ER visit would be better... Detailed Answer: Dear Madam, Well, looking into your problem I feel it would be better to visit the ER. I am slightly concerned about the left side facial numbness and drawing that you have along with the headache. It could be from benign reasons, however with the back ground of lupus, I would want to exclude lupus cerebritis and stroke at the earliest. I would sincerely urge you to visit the ER. Take care.
