I am also new to this forum as well. I have had this disease for 9 months now and still trying to figure out what is and what isn't. I just started developing what I think is reactions to the sun. My joints get aching,sweats, dizziness and heart racing. I have had some tingling in my hands and feet but I just had a mild stroke so I'm not sure what is related to that. But I do notice some tingling when I go for my therapy outside. I was on Plaquenil for 7 months but really didn't help with my symptoms.
