Expert:  Dr PG (M.D.) replied 6 years ago.
To be honest the problems appears to be likely neurological in this situation, though a lupus like rheumatological problem cannot be ruled out too.
I would recommend more extensive testing for lupus, tests like ESR, ANA, DsDNA, CRP etc. would be needed.
A neurological consultation and MRI of the brain / spine would be appropriate in this situation too,
Warm regards
