Dry skin may not appear dry.  Do you use a moisturizing lotion regularly on your feet?  Also, has your doctor checked you for foot fungus?

Also, the sore tip of tongue could be a sign of Vitamin B12 deficiency.  Ask your doctor to check your blood level of Vitamin B12 to see if it is low or low-normal.  Anything under 400 warrents a supplement, and if it is under 200, you will need injections or the nasal gel (Nascobol) to get it back into the normal range quickly.

Take care,

Veronica, I can't help much with the itchy feet, but I do get sores on my tongue. The sores on my tongue are part of my lupus and sjogrens. The sores I get on my tongue usually hurt so I have a "magic" mouthwash I use on them.

On my feet it's in the middle and only around the time I don't feel up to par, along with my tounge, my mouth will get hot and then really dry for a little while and all the water in the world doesn't seem to make a difference, I will get the sore.

Hope this cleared things up alittle.

Hi Veronica . . . I do get itchy palms and bottom of feet sometimes . . . along with an area on my thighs. The itch, for me, is not on the skin, but somewhere under the skin, so there is absolutely no relief in scratching and if I do scratch (the thigh) it will result in bruising. This is sometimes one of the first indications of an impending flare for me. Oh . . .and a brief painful ringing in my ear.

We do have the weirdest symptoms don't we?? I'm never sure how much of this is individual to me or if others have it too, but you will probably notice a pattern in your own symptoms which can warn you of upcoming flares.

I'm glad the others knew to have you check on the B12 . . . I didn't know that. Try wearing supportive shoes and socks. Put them on first thing in the morning. That actually helps ALL of my body pain issues. Because I'm not working I can wear my hiking shoes every day. They are "trail running" shoes (even though I never run) and they are a God-send because they are made to support the weight of a back-pack and the hiker on rough terrain . . . . I accidentally realized that they are very helpful to all my joint issues. The rheumy always took them off to check my feet and he always commented on the shoes, saying that they were like orthopedic shoes.

Sorry . . . diverted from the subject.

Anyway . . . wearing shoes might help and remember to list each symptoms (no matter how weird) so when you go the doc's he will have more clues.

Blessings!

Rosie you nailed it it like under the skin and I get it on my palms and have for years. I was told though as an old wise tell that if your left palm itched you were getting money and if your right you were losing money. LOL

My thighs don't itch but I've noticed if I'm out in the sun my arms will itch and burn like on fire.

Since your itching on the bottoms of your feet only comes when you are feeling poorly, my guess is that it is a mild form of neuropathy. I get the same thing when I've overdone things. Mine also appears on the bottoms of my feet or the palms of my hands. Sometimes it turns into a tingling feeling, like when your foot falls asleep - the tingling when you wake it back up.

Mine goes away when I start taking care of myself - slowing down, eating right at the right times, sleeping, maybe napping, making sure I'm taking my meds....

Hope that helps,

Thanks Lynwood . . . . wow, never thought of it being a neuropathy thing. I do also get the foot sleeping, tingling, pins and needles thing when I do too much. Hmmmm. I'm not dx'd with neuropothy, but with all the pins and needles, I can't help but wonder.

blessings!

The neuropathy is part of the lupus (or UCTD) package... these little pins and needles don't seem to be enough to warrent anther Dr & another Dx.

Another little secret surprise symptom, aren't we happy!

Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause peripheral neuropathy also, so that would be another good reason to be checked for that.  And while they're checking, ask for a Folic Acid test as well to make sure you aren't deficient in that one.  These two - B12 & Folic Acid - are very important for proper nerve function.

Take care,

Wow, someone else has the itching feet!  Mine are only in the arches of my feet and itch so bad I could scratch til they bleed at times.  But, it's like someone else said, it's under the skin and you get no relief no matter how much you scratch.  I've asked my rheumy and he acted like I was crazy.  Went to a dermatologist and she tested and said I had no fungus, infection, etc.  She gave me an anti-itch cream, but it didn't help.  I was beginning to think I was imagining it.  Glad to know it's another wierd Lupus symptom and not in my head as the doctors suggest!
