lupus headaches
grandwillowgal posted:
Have you tried migraine treatment medications for lupus headaches? I use maxalt 10 mg tablets. The majority of the time the headache resolves. If having a shower of headaches with lupus a pulse of prednisone clears the headache activity too. If lupus is causing a vascular headache usually conventional treatment for migraine will improve the headache. I hope this helps.
