I joined this group to discuss symptoms, though I have no idea if I have Lupus or not. I meet some of the criteria, but not too many. I've had this malar rash now for almost 2 months, and while it looks like the lupus rash, I am no closer to finding out what it is. So I have made an appt. with a dermatologist for tomorrow.
In a previous posted question, I discussed how my memory is failing me. Once I get distracted by any little thing, I completely forget what it was I was doing. And I forget simple little things like words I need to use or things I need to get done. But I wanted to ask about sleeping, and dreams. For the last few nights, about a week now, I have been waking up around 3am having odd dreams or thoughts. I don't mean to make it sound crazy, and I'm hoping someone knows what I mean. Its an odd feeling like I have racing thoughts that I can't get a grip on. There is no way to go back to sleep because its like I'm watching a TV show and can't control what I'm envisioning.
Maybe I'm sounding crazy, but this has never happened to me, and I'm not prone to making a big deal over a dream or anxiety.
Could this be part of a disorder that has affected my mind? I have the appointment tomorrow, but not sure what parts I should even discuss with a dermatologist.
