light headed/dizziness

I recently was dx with Lupus. For the past couple of weeks I have been so light headed/Dizzy. (not sure how to categorize it) It even wakes me up at night. Strange feeling at the to of my head. Just wondering if anyone has experienced the same thing and what it may be.

Re: light headed/dizziness

Tracy, did you start a new med? Might it be part of your problem? (Steroids can disrupt sleep, for instance.)

Another thought: I had awful sleep disruption when I was "on the rise", I think from the disease.

Have you discussed this with your doctor?

Hope you keep posting here & sending you my warm wishes, sincerely, Vee

Re: light headed/dizziness

I had really bad dizzy spells before being diagnosed. Didn't have any idea what was wrong with me, some days I couldn't even function. After diagnosis and Plaquenil kicked in, I've had very few days of being dizzy. I was so aniemic (sp?) by the time I was diagnosed I could barely walk. Hope you find answers soon and feel better!
