    Hello, I am a 32 year old Female. About 4 years ago I was put on Topamax 50mg daily for migraines. Two months later dose increased to two 50mg tabs daily. I started losing weight like crazy! Within the first year of being on Topamax I lost total of 35lbs. I even called my PCP at one point bc I was afraid to lose anymore weight. He said it would plateau at some point and not to worry. Which it did. It was around the 2nd year of being on the topamax I started noticing little symptoms that were abnormal for me... Poor circulation, getting more forgetful, my speech would get jumbled at times. My 3rd year I was getting aches and pains all over in spurts "flare ups" my finger tips were turning white and going numb/my ring finger especially. I was then referred to a Rheumatoligist and diagnosed with Raynauds Syndrome. This was unfortunately after a long series of unneeded testing by several specialists. I was having pain in my chest. Saw several cardiologists. Numerous tests done. Found enlarged right side of my heart but nothing "serious" pain in my chest continued so MRIs, chest XRaYs, etc... Finally when I was sent to the Rheumatologist: pleurisy!
    Boat load of lab work. Showing I do have Lupus. SLE.
    Currently on Plaquenil. Cellcept. Prednisone. HCTZ. Celexa. Topamax. Vit D 50,000 Units. Vit B12injections. And I'm STILL tired!!! I don't know how that's possible! I'm in constant "brain fog" stiff neck all the time. Achy pain in joints.. So frustrating!
