I also have pins and needle feeling in my hands and feet ,sometimes my legs while in the shower. I have some numbness feeling across the bridge of my nose at times and sometimes one side of my face will feel numb. This comes and goes and is not an everyday thing. I am in the midst of being diagnosed with SLE . I have had symptoms on and off for years. Of course not even thinking of Lupus. Just really bad luck in the health department. After years of unexplained things popping up , this past year I have been in a flare and did not know. I went to the ER with chest pain and was diagnosed with Pleuritis, Carditis , 14 years ago I had lung surgery . I had developed nodules on my lungs and was very ill for no apparent reason. They took them out , but was more concerned with cancer and only tested me for graves disease at that time. Now , after that trip to the ER I had many symptoms of SLE at once , the molar rash , aches and pains , the problems with inflammation around my heart sac and lining of lungs. I was put on prednisone , two days in hospital and then once i was home , i got a little better but the prednisone gave me edema , landed me back in the hospital a month later , on the 24th of this month . With the same thing , white cell count 20 with no infection. Blood in urine at every check. Now i had a ct scan and the tech said to my doctor that I have what appears to be shards of metal or calcium in my lungs. a specialist said in order for me to have metal like that in my lungs I would have to have drank some mercury or something. So more than likely calcium.. has anyone heard of this...?
