    What causes loss of coordination while treating discoid lupus erythematosus?

I was recently told I have discoid Lupus, I m on a steroid cream, antibiotic cream and plaqunil 200 mg 2 times a day for the past 2 weeks now. Is my balance and sense of coordination a possible side effect?? I have also been experiencing pressure on my upper chest that comes and goes.

I don't think so but discoud lupus itself can have neurological symptoms and you need to work with your rheumatologist regarding that.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
