Fainting Spells, petechia spots, and low BP in 30yr old with Possible Lupus
last month I had my menstrual cycle and didnt stop bleeding for over 3 weeks and started developing petechia spots on my stomach and chest and I have had petechia before when my Internal Med Dr thought I had Nephrotic Syndrome and I was referrd to a Nephrologist and he dx me with lupus Nephritis I have had a positive ANA and sm-RNP ab positive with 8/11 criteria for lupus but the rhumy i was sent to refuses to dx me for some reason! He keeps giving me excuse after excuse of why I dont have lupus and every other Dr I see knows I have it except the ones who work with HIM! Funny! ? I have been having these spells where I almost or sometimes do pass out for a couple of weeks. I get dizzy, then shaky, start hearing everyone around me but just am to weak to talk and start pouring sweat with chills after and dont know why ! I dont know if my platelets are low or my RBC ? I have a bad rash on my ankles and it is only getting worse but its nothing new because I have had weird rashes for 12 yrs! They only respond to steroids! SO I checked my blood pressure and it is usually severely high 140/100- 160/120 and it is now 119/ 76! So It is a major drop ! I have weakness of all my muscles and my legs are very weak when trying to walk up stairs! I dotn know what type of Dr to go to? My Nephrologist, Endocrinologist, or Cardiologist? I have all 3 specialist but am looking for a new Internal Med Dr and Rheumatologist. My Raynauds is acting up a lot and I am having alot of foamy urine as well which is usually from proteinuria so I dont know what to do but I am getting scared because I slept all weekend only waking up to got to the bathroom (All night) and to eat when able and not nauseated! I amnot dehydrated because I make sure to drink! I have been up since 7am and alreasdy had another episode about 2 hrs ago and now I am weak really weak! I thought it was hypoglycemia which i have but its not eating does nothing to help at all! It wont pass until I lay down and sleep and when I wake back up I am drained! no matrer how long i sleep! I took my blood pressure when I was up and feeling a little better so I can only imagine how low it was when I am feeling faint! Any ideas of what this could be? And do you think I lost to much blood? I am scared because I am about to start my menstrual cycle again and just stopped bleeding from last month.
