Lupus Note

Last night was another one of my crazy headaches....slightly different from the regular type of Lupus headache. I'm gonna start calling these my "Chilly Brain Headaches". They happen in the left rear quarter of my head, and they've been happening more and more often.

I have a bunch of different sensations that happen. It starts out as a cold tingle...really cold, almost numb tingling...I have moments where that whole part of my skull feels numb... sometimes it changes to really hot shooting sensations. And sometimes the sensations translate to me as pain, but not mostly. It's unpleasant and disconcerting, but not painful usually like a Lupus headache or a migraine.

Today I woke up at 8am and still had this "Chilly Brain" going's mostly gone now by 3pm. But I've also had the Olfactory hallucinations again today...first an overwhelming cologne that made me gag...nasty nasty stuff......then it changed to burning rubber/electrical stuff.
