Recently had that and reading out loud would make me so dizzy I thought I was going to pass out. Ended up having to do with my bronchial tubes becoming constricted relatively suddenly and very badly, I couldn't exhale hardly at all and the air would bubble and swirl in my lungs. Had my pulmonology tests and they showed my hypoxia which is probablydue to past lung damage and asthma/COPD getting worse. Prednisone completely fixed it. Was it due to my AI disease? Sure sounds like it, maybe same case with you . I would get into rheumy soon or call nurse and see about getting on something because it had started affecting my heart. I hope you feel better soon and that you get tests and get this documented and fixed up.
