Yes, of course Lupus can cause it!!! What planet is your rheumy from???!!!!
Lupus => Extra, unexplained, inflammation. When that inflammation gets to the nerves => neuropathy!!!
For some people it presents as itching, tingling, or pain. I most often have it in my fingers and toes. When my inflammation lessons, so do the neuropathy symptoms. The med that is most effective is ... surprise! The med that decreases the inflammation! Prednisone.
What did your Dr give you? If he's trying to treat it some other way without addressing the inflammation (inflammation can be verified by blood markers), I'll be surprised if you have any relief.
