Hey everyone! Just a quick question...Can lupus cause sharp sudden stabbing sensations deep inside of you? It will happen anywhere but doesnt last long, maybe 5-10 second sensation. I have had it inside my knee, foot, kidney area, chest area, back of neck, arms, bottom, and fingers. It only strikes one spot at a time. The thing I can describe it most like is if anyone has ever stepped on a nail or something along those lines except its on the inside of my body. It's been going on for about 2 weeks...
If you have had this happen or know what it is, is there anything that will help these go away. I had blood work done last week and blood counts look great (except anemic) My C3 and C4 are really low...didnt mention what the numbers where just said "really low". Could that have something to do with it? Maybe a vitamin def?
