Angela, I wouldn't let having neuropathy make you doubt having lupus. I did a quick internet search about
neuropathy and lupus and came up with a bunch of stuff that connects the two. If I remember right, there have been quite a few people on the forum since I've been here who have had neuropathy.
Here's a copy of part of an article from CNN health: "Peripheral neuropathy often affects people with diabetes and autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus."
This and other articles I can across all said the same thing that neuropathy can be a common thing for people with lupus and other autoimmune diseases.
How is your Sjogrens? Mine is the worst it has ever been. I have the same liquigel eye drops as you do for my eyes, but I have to put them in a lot now and my mouth is so dry it's making me crazy. I think the dryness of the winter is making my Sjogrens symptoms worse. My nose is really dry too. Isn't all of this fun???
