I get pain in my hands and swelling at night.Even my shoulders ache at night.To turn over and put the covers over me sometimes HURTS bad.I blamed the Lupus and lately i have been blaming every ache,pain and fart on Lupus.Though i went to my Rhuemy and she said i have Carpul Tunnel syndrome and what i'm exeperiencing is nerve pain not joint pain like i thought..That is why my hands ache, get tingly and numb at night.They even get swollen at night.I was prescribed Neurontin and Celebrex but i much rather try and deal with the pain and just take motrin.I cant take any more drug side effects right now.Besides,the discomforts of the carpul tunnel,for me,subside within a few hours after i wake up.
I sometimes get pain and stiffness in my feet in the morning too.No buzzing sensation though just pain and stiffness.Like this morning,i worked a 12 hour shift yesterday and i'm a Nurse and on my feet all day.So today i'm stiff and in some pain.I have pain in my ankles and in the arch of my feet.
Many years ago i would get panic attacks.I would awake from my sleep in a TOTAL panic.Like something was going to happen and i had no idea where i was and where to run.Scary feeling...i worked that out in therapy.It was an emotional issue for me not physiological one.
You may want to talk to your Rhuemy about these symptoms if they are NEW symptoms.
