Headaches and problems in eye sight after a surgery of SLE

Hello Doctor, I am 23 years unmarried SLE Lupus patient who have undergone a surgery 2 years ago because of blood clotting. There were 2 surgeries done for me for the above reason and docs said I am a SLE LUPUS affected Now I am continuing on 3 medicines which I have been said to use life long. My Doctor says I am 85% considered normal and well. But when considered again with gynacologists, and other doctors everyone says Lupus is a bad disease. Now my question is on my future, I came to know that pregnancy is considered High risk for lupus patients, The immunity levelvs are low in Lupus patients coz of which Health issues are more in future and I also want to know the life of Lupus patients. Myself now, after this treatment I have got changes with my eye sight and I m also prone to head aches whenever strained a bit more. Please let me know about all. Thank You

As I was sitting at work I got a fluttering/vibration feeling in the back of my head and felt like I was going to pass out. I also felt like I saw stars. I am alittle shaky, however, I have eaten lunch today and don't have any other medical conditions other then a mixed connective tissue disease. Is this something to be concerned about?

I have Ehler-Danlos (hybermobile) type and now have an extremely high CRP rat 34.4 (I believe anything over 7 is a concern). I've had 4 shoulder replacements. My orthopedic surgeon aspirated some fluid from the joint/prosthesis and has ruled out an infection there. Now my familiy doctor doesn't seem concerned at all with a 34.4 CRP reading but I am! I am 53 years old and have a lot of other symptoms as well, but my main concern right now is that my extremely high CRP may indicate something that should be treated right away - like cancer or lupus. There have been no tests ordered and I feel very confused about how much I should push my doctor to investigate this. By the way, my CRP has been elevated from a shoulder infection prior -- then it was only at 12 -- now at 34.4 that seems very frightening to me. My high sensitivity CRP test put me in the "average" range for heart disease. Do you have any suggestions for me?
