I also have tissue lumps in a couple of places on my body. They popped up unexpectedly and I was concerned they were tumors!! I had ultrasounds done on them (one on my lower back, one on my left thigh), and they are benign lupus created lumps of tissue. I also have a few cysts which actually showed up when I was just a child. Connection? Maybe. So yes, it is common to get skin related stuff like cysts, lumps,etc with lupus.
The brain fog is frustrating for sure. It'll come and go. Hard to get used to, but after some time, you'll be laughing at yourself over some of the things you say or forget! We've had a few really funny threads about brain fog here. It's better to try and find the funny side of it. Otherwise you'll go crazy!
