Finally some news from a new neuro on my foot tingling.
Even though my Lupus and my Sjogren's are in remission, he says both diseases can present with tingling. Lupus neuropathy is generally in the large nerves, and presents more as weakness, while Sjogren's neuropathy is in the small nerves, and presents more as pain. Of course, neither presents as episodic like my feet are doing, so...
We wait for another episode, then try to get blood & nerve testing done while the symptoms are present.
The really disappointing thing is that my rheumatologist, who is supposed to KNOW about
Lupus & Sjogren's, sent me to a podiatrist and didn't mention (or know?) that both diseases can cause neuropathy.
More fun with auto-immune disease...
