It certainly could be connected, and I hope you are feeling better. CNS SLE can cause seizures, and my neurologist sent me for an MRI/MRA that was 'normal', but screens me for any seizure type activity every time I see him. It is one of the big things I worry about, as I, like Butterflake, have cns involvement. I fall, I can't think straight, I sometimes don't have the muscle strength to even hold up my arms. The next time I crash neurologically, I have agreed to have the spinal tap I have declined to date. (I know... ) It is a good plan to see a neurologist, I admire your dr. for admitting she/he isn't experienced in seizure tx. Plaquenil and Neurontin have helped me immensely for over 5 yrs. The plaquenil has helped my joint pain, and the neurontin lessens the terrible burning, numbness and tingling in my extremities that I live with most of the time. Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes nerve inflammation, and is considered and taught as "a target organ" disease. So some people have skin symptoms, some kidney, some nerves, some all, and as we here know too well, the signs and symptoms, the antibody markers, they come and go. I questioned my sanity and my first symptoms were antiphospholipid antibodies, and then I started falling.
hugs and keep us posted,
ps. I am absolutely certain I saw the bunny that Butterflake swerved to miss.....
God knows, even if I don't....
