Does Anyone Get A Creepy, Crawling Sensation On Your Scalp And Face?

Does Anyone Get A Creepy, Crawling Sensation On Your Scalp And Face?

I've had that on my scalp for several days, and now it's moved to my face, along my cheekbones. It's also coinciding with muscle twitching on my arms, legs, and trunk. I also had difficult with my fingers last night; the fingers in my right hand in particular were shaking as I tried to type, especially the middle finger. I have an essential tremor, but that's in my left hand, which wasn't as bad. I have sle, sjogren's, and fibro. Thank you!

Feel Like Something Biting Me, But I Look And Nothing Is There! Burning Skin That Hurts To Touch. Anyone Else Experience This?

Feel Like Something Biting Me, But I Look And Nothing Is There! Burning Skin That Hurts To Touch. Anyone Else Experience This?

I have started felling like something is biting or pricking me, but when I look there is nothing there! It happens on my arms and legs, in different environments, and at different times of the day. It is getting more and more frequent. I also have been experiencing a burning sensation on the inside of my right forearm that hurts to touch. I am wondering what these new symptoms could be. Anyone have the same experiences?

Do You Have Creepy Skin Crawling Burning Sensations?

Do You Have Creepy Skin Crawling Burning Sensations?

Hello! I have lupus and I also have depression/anxiety. I have been through several meds to help my dep./anx. But most WE THINK are causing a terrible skin reaction. Where I have to scratch my arms, the tops of my feet and face to feel relief or lay on a heating pad. I've never known if this was the cause for me depression meds or my lupus. My rheumy says it has nothing to do with my lupus. Have any of you ever experienced this?

A MyLupusTeam Member said:

Yes to all of the above. When I am stressed it gets 100 times worse.

Itchy Scalp Again! Flare? Plaquenil? Hairloss?

Itchy Scalp Again! Flare? Plaquenil? Hairloss?

Hi everyone!

I’m having one of those bouts when my scalp gets SO itchy at night I’m being driven crazy!!

It’s happened before and usually lasts just a couple days. I also noticed those weird pimples I seem to get are back! They aren’t acne, they seem it be a reaction of sorts. Almost like a tiny insect bite. They usually pop up when I’m having a flare. Do Lupus flares ever trigger histamine?

Today I also upped my Plaquenil to twice a day for the first time! I was happy that I haven’t been… read more
