Does anyone have issues after riding in an elevator?

I started a new job a couple of weeks ago and I have been taking an elevator. After a few days I felt like I have vertigo and it won’t go away. I tried Dramamine but it hasn’t helped at all. I’m fine when I’m in motion but the moment I sit or stand still I start feeling like I’m on a boat. Just curious if anyone has experienced anything like this! TY!!

Why is it so hard to determine a diagnosis for Lupus/autoimmune diseases

About two years ago It started with a skin cash on my lower legs that spread to my arms and torso and scalp. Thought it was allergy and my PC doc treated it with a number of antihistamines to no avail. The rash did not itch but burned and felt like pricks all over me. Ended up doing rounds of prednisone, which would help but the rash came back. My PC thought it might be vasculitis at this point.

Had skin biopsy in two places results… read more

Anyone diagnosed with Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia?

So after 3 blood transfusions back to back to back a hematologist finally stepped in this last hospital visit and diagnosed me with Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia (AIHA). Just like the begining of my Lupus diagnoses I feel like this is going to be hard to deal with. I see very little about it as well as a very small handful of people with it. Im not sure what to expect but heres to a new diagnosis i guess.
