Burning & Itching Of Feet

Burning & Itching Of Feet

Does anyone have severe burning, itching & pain in feet? Especially at night? The only thing that seems to help is ice cold water & neurontin. Also, have been having a lot of swelling in feet, but may be from prednisone.

Anyone Get Extreme Hand Pain And Numbness Mainly At Night?

Anyone Get Extreme Hand Pain And Numbness Mainly At Night?

I don't know what is going on with my extreme hand pain and numbness and so far none of my doctors do either. I've had MRI's and carpal tunnel tests. My rheumatologist just today prescribed an NSAID gel that she thought would really help (but it's not). It's 2 am in the morning and I'm up cruising this site because the pain and numbness in my hands wakes me up and it's always the worst at night - maybe it has something to do with laying down. I could… read more

Has anyone experienced any skin soreness or sensisitvity... Kinda like you had your hair pulled up all day and your scalp hurts but on your body? I've had ithappen a few times on my arms, back ribs and thighs. Fibro runs in my family and I'm just worried I'll develop that as well

Does Anyone Get Muscle Twitches?

Does Anyone Get Muscle Twitches?

I'm wondering if anyone gets muscle twitches. If so, are they mild and "small" sensations or strong? Do they last for a while or just for a second? Do you ever get involuntary movements? And do you think this is related to lupus? Any information at all would be appreciated.

After months of foot/ankle pain (along with everywhere else!), I started feeling constant twitching in my feet and calves about two months ago (usually when I sit or lie down), and now I occasionally also get… read more

Medications

Medications

I know everyone's symptoms are different and everyone's lupus is different, but what medications do you take? I can't get into a rheumatoid Dr for 12 months (only one in area that takes my ins) so my pcp is handling mine and I hope he's doing what he's suppose to. He put me on plaquenl, amitriptyline and neurotion. I'm allergic to prednisone so I can't take it. I was just diagnosed in Oct 2015.

How Long Did It Take For You To Get A Diagnosis?

How Long Did It Take For You To Get A Diagnosis?

I have been with rheumatology for almost 6 months and he still can't decide what I have. He still has not decided if I have RA, Lupus or Fibro. He doesn't like to listen to all of my symptoms. All my autoimmune antibodies came back negative, but 2 visits ago he said it was acting like RA my Crp is 15, I have joint pain in multiple joints (all symmetrical), severe fatigue, hair loss, severely low vitamin D, swelling and heat/inflammation in my joints. Walking is… read more
