Does anyone else have this problem? I was diagnosed with SLE about 3 years ago. I suffered terribly with joint and muscle pain but this is now generally under control with hydroxychloroquine (touch wood!).
For the last year or so I have had terrible itching, mostly on lower legs but also arms and thighs, along with a burning, prickling sensation and twitching. It is driving me absolutely crazy, particularly at night and after a shower. It can last up to three hours and happens most days. It is making me feel very anxious and depressed and I want to tear my skin off when it's at its worst! I presume it's some kind of neuropathy?!
I have made an appointment with my GP but couldn't get in for weeks!
Anyone else?? 😢😁
