I have been having some odd issues. I started passing out and not remember things that were going on. I also started having a rapid heart rate (126+ bpm) followed by extremely high blood pressure the following day. I also have some blood work that came back bad for my liver and have to have a biopsy on the 24th of this month. My question you think that I could be having a flare for all of these things to be going wrong all at once? My ANA is 1:320 and I have been having hair loss and rashes as well. My rheumy keeps telling me that it is not a flare up but I have not seen him in 3 months and at that time none of this was going on. Any advice? Thanks for listening.

BPM is not too tachycardiac. Passing otu is not good. A sudden drop or a sudden rase in blood pressure can cause passing out. I never believed that one could pass out due to blood pressure, til the day I had just gotten off work at the hospital and I felt like I was gonna pass out, I figured while I was in the building I'll have a doc give a quick check up... I got to ED (which is ER) and went to say I needed help when the security guard said "Ma'm are you ok? Ma'm do you need a wheelchair?" Next I knew the security guard was holding me! He put me in a wheel chair, and they noticed my blood pressure was really low. I have a wierd nac of knowing my body, and its paid off a few times before I went unconcious.

My advice is, get in with your primary right away. Passing out means something, blood pressure, stress, asthma, lack of oxygen, so on. I'm seriously a pro at when I know I'm gonna go unconcious... except that one time, when the ED told me I would of died if I came in 30 minutes later, but that was from an acute asthma attack. I'm telling you ED's don't like you going unconcious in front of them, even in waiting rooms. Good news is you are always treated right away.

I'd see a doctor right away to make sure it's not a flare.

Sounds like a flare of some sort is happening. Time to see a Dr, I might start with my Rheumy but either one is better than feeling like you are.
