I'm new here! Was attending a rheumatologist for a few years about 10 years ago when I experienced a flare up of swollen painful hands and was found to have an elevated ANA. He said casually "you may have Lupus" nothing more was done as my symptoms resolved and there is a very poor rheumatology service where I live! Now I am 55 years old and through my own research have discovered I have a lot more symptoms- fatigue, depression, mouth ulcers, raynauds,achy joints and my worst symptom of all, constant tingling, numbness in my hands and feet with severe itch. My GP said it was dermatitis and I have been prescribed numerous topical remedies to no avail. Both feet have rashes with broken skin as do my fingers. I am waiting the results of recent blood tests but the tingling and itch drive me crazy, particularly at night which keeps me awake. Anyone else experience this? Any tips for relief?
