Hi All,

I'm 22 years old and I have been diagnosed with ITP/SLE since 2005. The only concerning SLE symptom I have is low platelets. Dr said that I have positive ANA and a tiny bit of protein in my urine. My platelets have never been above 30 since 2004. It has always been sitting in the low 20s and high 10s. Recent blood test shows 6, which is very low. Am currently on Cellcept, Prednisolone and Plaquenil but platelets count still not looking good.

Recently, I get this tingling feeling across the whole upper chest and on my cheeks or hands. The feeling comes and go and doesn't last long. I asked my Haematologist and he said it could be lack of calcium. I googled "tingling feeling on chest" and came up with chest parasthesia and apparently its got something to do damaged nerves.

Has anyone out there experienced this before? I'm a little worried.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
