Has anyone had patches of skin that are sensitive to the touch or clothing?
I have no pain with the sensitivty.  I usually have it on the back of my leg and for the first time on my tricep area.  Usually only last for 24 hrs.

I haven't experienced that, but I'm not too surprised. Lupus does weird stuff! From time to time my ears become extra sensitive to sound for a few hours, or my eyes become so sensitive to movement that it almost makes me dizzy.

I wouldn't worry a lot about it, but do make sure the Drs add it to the list of symptoms in your chart.

I get it on my feet, hands, and elbows. They get very tender and then it fades away.

          I get the patches of sensitive skin areas too. I usually get it around my neck area and the front of my chest. Also, my feet and wrists and hands. I don't know why it happens, but it is very uncomfortable. It usually sets off a rash and most of the time it itches. rolleyes

Hi! All,
And it is driving me crazy as we speak. The skin on my upper left leg, (the side opposite my impaired hearing and rt sided headache, which is the leg that gets numb and my foot drops/can't as quickly pick up my leg causing me to stumble,) usually my thigh, feels like it's gone to sleep with funny prickles. At night, I sometimes stick a Flector nsaid patch on it and that seems to help alot.

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