I have CNS Lupus and my nerves themselves become inflammed, with the swelling causing the nerve to get bigger, and then the carpel tunnel in our wrists, (which I think is like a channel to wrap around the nerve) gets tight, and then we feel numbness and tingling. I have found a wrist brace, the kind that has a place for your thumb, when I sleep, is really helpful. sue p.s. I am living on 5mg of prednisone, thank God! It helps so much, keeps me walking and functioning so I can work.

Mine is when I'm sleeping. I try to go to bed with my hands sort of laying on my tummy. Of course - with my "BFF prednisone" - that is becoming harder and harder! lol The numbness doesn't seem to bother me during the day.
