Hey there all. I am on my way to diagnosis but noticed recently I most of the time have problems with constipation but every once in a while its closer to the opposite of that. I get nauseas and dont want to eat and my stomach hurts. Could this be IBS from the autoimmune crap or what? Any suggestions?
 
I also have problems with headaches. They are usually just pressure headaches in the front of my head. Sometimes like today though I woke up with one and it feels like a migraine. Pressure with sharp pains behind the eyes, sensitive to light and it seems to come and go as far as severity. Nothing works for it though so I just have to deal. Anybody else?

I also am having one of those headaches you describe, had it yesterday too! have you discovered anything that will take the headaches away? When the sharp pain starts to shoot behind my eyes, i tend to get really nausaus and have actually puked 2 times from it today.  I have tried tramadol, tylenol, aleve, and Ibprofin and so far no luck!
 
I don't know about the IBS thing but I am sure someone will come along and give you some good info and advice!

Mommy,
 
I usually wake up in the mornings feeling horribly nauseous (I would say 5 days out of 7) . . . I am not sure what it is from, but I have been that way all my life. I absolutely cannot even think about eating when I wake up and the even the smell of food makes me want to throw up. All I can do to deal with it is take it easy for a while, wait for the feeling to pass. Usually after I have been awake for 2 or 3 hours, the feeling is gone. I don't know if it is IBS, though - I have never been tested for it . . .
 
I also have frequent headaches, similar to what you described with the sharp pain and the sensitivity to light and the severity of the pain on an "ebb & flow" type cycle, and that dreaded nauseous feeling as well. And they are STUBBORN headaches that just do not want to go away. Even if I can get them to go away, they leave me feeling just trampled.
 
My doctor recommended a combination of ibuprofen and antihistamines and the combination seems to work for me. Allergy headaches can make you sensitive to light and will cause pain behind the eyes, in the forehead and wrap their way around the back of your head as well. Allergies can also trigger migraines.
 
Have you ever been tested for allergies? This may be something you want to ask your doctor about since if your headaches do turn out to be an allergy related thing, it is pretty easily remedied.

Actually I do have seasonal allergies already. Im on flonase and loratadine once a day for it. With the possibile lupus diagnosis pending i wasn't sure if it could be from that or not. I do know lupies tend to have allergies though. I will mention it to my rheumy as I see him for the first time thursday. I got my appt switched from may thank the Lord! Well thank you for your input. I will keep you posted :) Take care -Britt

Hey I figured Id fill you guys in on my appt yesterday. Well he seems to be the type to go by blood tests. I hope then that the ones he ordered specific for lupus and such come back positive lol He said he doesn't think they will and said my heart murmur and double jointedness can cause weird symptoms. WHAT??! lol Ok in the past 6 months I have gone from no positive ana to two positive anas. One high at 243 and one positive at 1/160 and speckled. I also have become photosensitive more than before and newly photosensitive to fluorescent lights. He has got to be joking! lol Well I got my blood drawn today and should hear something by tuesday. Well see what happens. He tested me for antiDNA, antism, antiRNP, antiENA, antissa, antissb, and SCL 70 I think that was all. Keep your fingers crossed :) Hope you all are well! -Britt
