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 really use some advice on what to do… read more

Alloydonia

Alloydonia

Is this part of Fibro. My nerve endings are on fire and skin sensitive to touch. How is this treated and what helps. It has been bothering me but getting worse. I asked my PCP if it’s alloydonia what causes it, he was no help but I find him clueless anyway.

Antidepressants For Pain?

Antidepressants For Pain?

Anyone know of any good antidepressants that can also help with joint pain, neuropathy, and hot "flashes"/burning sensations? The only two that come into mind that I can think of are Cymbalta and Effexor. I'm thinking of asking my doctor about Cymbalta, but I'd like to know if anyone has either tried that one or know of any others. And what side effects, if any, do you experience (weight changes, fatigue, dizziness/confusion, hair loss, etc)
Also, which ones(s) is best for extreme panic attacks… read more

Skin Soreness

Skin Soreness

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

A MyLupusTeam Member said:

Yes I get that every 2-3 months. I am reluctant to make a big deal about it to my rheumy to try to minimize meds. It usually resolves after a day or two and I'm good.

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 twitches… read more

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.
