headaches and migraines

Does anyone get headaches and migraines daily? I am still very new to my diagnosis of SLE, and nothing really seems to work.

I'll be able to get some neurological tests done later this new year, but until then I'm willing to try anything.

Is a wide pulse pressure something to be concerned about?

My normal systolic is 90-110 which is low to normal, but diastolic tends to run in the 50s sometimes 40s. I plan on mentioning it at my next appt. I should mention that I exercise quite frequently and haven't noticed any symptoms.

Mild lupus?

My rheumy says I have "mild lupus". Anyone else's rheumy tell them that their disease is mild? If so, how often do you have flares and if you've had it for a while, did it eventually get worse or remain the same?

Would if it's Fibromyalgia??

I check off on almost everything that points to lupus or RA but my blood work doesn't show it. I'm glad but I'm still dealing with this suffering and luckily I had something called HPylori so I had CT scan and my organs are OK and the antibiotics for HPylori weren't too horrible.
I just want to know if I don't have lupus then it's Fibromyalgia but is the treatment the same? Help!
