One of the main symptoms of Lupus is random inflammation for no particular reason -- mild inflammation of nerves often feels like itching, tingling, burning, and/or "electric shocks". This is a mild neuropathy, but doesn't usually signify any huge issues. I've had it several times in the last 9 years, in different places and at different times.
If you are using prednisone with a "take as needed" directive, take a couple more mg. Otherwise, take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen. Make sure you are sleeping enough, eating well, and avoiding as much stress (physical, emotional, etc.) as possible.
Talk to your rheumatologist at your next visit or sooner if it seems to get worse.
