Newly diagnosed with Mixed connective Tissue Disease

Newly diagnosed with Mixed connective Tissue Disease

Hi all, I’m new here. I’m upset, sad, confused...but glad I have some answers. Here is my story. I’m married with 4 kids, 33 years old. I’ve felt off for the past few years. Last May, 2018, I went in to my doc for extreme fatigue, hair loss, excruciating neck pain, weak arms, numbness in my arms, legs, hands and feet, daily headaches and dizzy spells and my skin burning, itching, like it hurt to be touched.

Do any of you find your hands cramping allot?

Do any of you find your hands cramping allot?

My hands have been cramping for the past two days only at night. I do notice small hives but nothing major and it's only my hands that cramp up even though I have hives on other places. I drink a lot of water through out the day. Any advice would help.
