Yes, finger/hand pain is one of my predominant symptoms and has been the entire three years I've been seeing a rheumy. Sometimes it concentrates in one or two joints, other times it's just overall aching and stiffness. I had an MRI of my hands and wrists last Friday, to hopefully clarify a diagnosis. Every once in a while, a joint will become hot and red, but I don't have classic symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis....so they aren't sure exactly what's going on.
Anyway, I find that heat packs give a lot of relief. Sometimes at night, I go to sleep with my hands resting on heat packs.
I also have a great deal of pain in my feet. I think this is just one of the areas the lupus attacks in me.
Good luck to you, and I hope you find some relief.
