Does Anyone Have Trouble With Ears And/or Nose?

Does Anyone Have Trouble With Ears And/or Nose?

My ears have been bothering quite a bit lately - popping, feeling blocked, sometimes other weirdness. Just had them checked by primary & she cleared them. Also my sense of smell seems to be decreasing. It’s been poor on & off for years but just wondering if either or both are lupus related.

Yes. I have been having a great deal of problems. I ended up in the hospital. Because the room was completely spinning. I couldn't lift my head or even stand or walk.
And the throwing up was unbelievable.

@A MyLupusTeam Member - thanks for that info. Primary didn’t say anything about ears being dry. Maybe something to talk about. I have dry skin as well. Also tested neg for sjogrens.

@A MyLupusTeam Member - no sores, just very little or no sense of smell.

@A MyLupusTeam Member - hope that filter helps you. I’ll have to talk w/rheum & or primary about this stuff. My ears were good for a couple of days.

Thanks everyone. Hugs to you all

I know when I went to my ENT doctor a month ago and he looked in my ears, he stated they are very dry. That’s what I have extremely dry skin and it drives me nuts, but didn’t test positive for sjogrens. My mouth also feels like it has cotton in it and my taste is Definately off

I have bad allergies and the recent fires have made them worse. So, yes.

I experience ringing in my ears, vertigo, & lots of pressure. Usually when all of these happen around the same time I will have auras and end up with a horrible migraine that I can't shake.
