  • Often the MS turns out to Hughes Syndrome/APS the symptoms are similar and even the scans can look the same, lots of people with Lupus have Hughes also, I do as do my children. dailymail.co.uk/health/arti...

  • Thanks for your reply I do have Hughes syndrome as well

  • Lot of us on here are on both forums, I and other friends are on this one for our Lupus information and on HSF for that. MaryFx

  • Hi Trueblood 3

    I can have similar symptoms to you , numbness, tingling in legs but not as badly as you describe. I also have the chest spasms which can be so painful, I'm recovering from a flare at the moment of it!. I have been told that Lupus can mimic the symptoms of MS which is why doctors have to check for it first before treating the Lupus!. It's a good thing your having the MRI scan, hope it's not too long a wait? Good luckX

  • Lupus can cause desalination damage the sheath around nerves cause symptoms andvsame result health wise as msn but some off the meds used in treatment will be different I have it g

  • Oh, yes. You are describing what I have felt many times. Particularly when I've had something with aspartame or MSG in it. Needless to say, I stay away from artificial anything.
