I just want to ask this question. This is very concerning to me, as I have never experienced this ....right as I was getting out of the bed this morning, I got dizzy---no, the room didn't spin was coming from in the head. I sat on the side of the bed for a few minutes to get my 'barrens' together....

I noticed after that, I was really tired for awhile and a little confused about I kinda have taken it easy today. I was sitting in my recliner and I got dizzy again. Does lupus make one dizzy or could there be something else going on?

Dizziness can come from a lot of things. Dehydration, getting up too fast, lack of food, blood pressure issues, Lupus, etc. If it starts happening often check with whoever you see most often - primary doctor or rheumy.

I had some bouts that seemed to be related to Lupus, but nothing specific enough to require specific treatment other than continuing prednisone.

I get dizzy first thing in the morning too.
I sometimes wake up dizzy.
My sister told me the other morning I was looking crossed eyed.

I also get dizzy just sitting in my recliner. No movement at all.
I've had these spells all of my life.
