I know lupus can cause confusion and light headedness and dizziness but has anyone been told why? What brings on these attacks and can they be prevented? I do not like feeling this way.
Thanks...Deb

" It's funny you asked this question. I've been very dizzy lately and I was going to ask if it was related to my lupus. "

" i am lightheaded all the time too but it came right at the time i had seizures. i just read today on the lupus.org website that the confusion or lupus fog is caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain. i didn't know that before. i hate feeling this way too! "

" I posted something about this weeks ago. I asked my dr. same thing, and my bloodwork was normal. The only explanation he can give me was either..diet (low blood pressure and lack of sodium) or changes in prednisone dose. "
