Does anyone else tingle with their lupus?  If so where do you tingle, how long does it last, and what does it feel like? eyes

   Hopefully, someone will come along soon that has only been dx'd with lupus to help you out. I have seen alot of posts about tingling here. I had tingling in my right hand this morning for about an hour. It felt like my hand was going to sleep or numb. I have multiple diseases that can cause this though. Hang in there!

There seems to often be some minor neuropathy associated with lupus - that's where the nerves are involved and cause some tingling sensations - usually but not always in hands & feet. Some people have this much more than others.

Mine has been fairly minor, and is definitely related to flares and/or times of greater stress when lupus becomes active.

Hope that helps a bit,

I get alot of tingling in my hands. It feel like my circulation gets cut off. It comes and goes. It usually last a few days to a week. Off and on. Than I don't notice it again until the next round. Which could come at anytime for no apperent reason. From several days to several weeks in between.
Hopfully the doctors can give you somthing to help you out with this.

The first sign of my CNS lupus was numbness and tingling in my hands and feet. A vague sense like you get when you sleep on your hand wrong from impaired circulation. And my feet are often burning and swollen up my ankles which is thought to be the vasculitis part of the wide and varied lupus puzzle. They look scalded and pale often at the same time. And neuro flushes of such cold chill in my bones followed by sweats of such unpleasant intensity, I am still bitter that my PCP and GYN were certain I had... 1. asthma 2. depression 3. menopause at age 43 4. nothing wrong.... because other than Hashimoto's and a pos. ANA my blood work was all normal. I was falling 3-5 times a week, yes, at work, in the back yard, and finally I went charging into the dr. to say no I am not depressed I am p#*#*&(##)

p.s. neurontin helps immensely, too and of course prednisone is my miracle cure. After trying the month long tapers that weren't pleasant, (40mg/30/20/10) I am now living on 5mg of prednisone every day and thanking God for it.

God knows, even if I don't....

I have both tingling and burning which turned out to be neuropathy. I take a low dose of neurontin for it and it does help. I would talk to your doc so he/she can help you figure out what might be causing your tingling.
