Hi I am new to all this and have not been dx with lupus but my dr. suspects it.
I am just wondering if any of you are dealing with severly dry eyes? My eyes have been dry, gritty, and red for the last week and it comes and goes. my optomitrist has prescribed me eyedrops but they dont seem to be working...He also told me i have bumps under my eyelids?
My eyes have been really dry for the last year but never have they gotten this bad till now.
Also, When I went to the dr. the nurse said wow your bp is real low (94/45) and she checked back on the last 6 months and the highest it has ever gotten is 110/60...any one dealing with this?
thank you all in advance for your help smilewinkgrin

Hey Familygirl...Welcome :)! Are you on any meds? I know side effects can cause dry eyes. Not sure what the bumps are, but I am sure someone will come along that knows more about it. I have severe dry eyes and they are red and gritty feeling. My problem is a mix of meds, allergies, and Lasik eye surgery. I would tell you what eye drops I use but left them at work and I can't think of the name. Sorry,know thats not much help!
