Hi everyone, I am not sure if this is the forum I should even be on. I had a blood test August which shows positive ENA antibodies mixed connective tissue disease, appointment with Rheumatologist end of January. Reading some of the posts here there seems to be a lot of pins and needles, has anybody ever had them in their lips and tongue? I passed out five times in three years and think that in trying to find out why other things were missed, but this amongst inflammation and bad joint pain (and deformation) is driving me mad. GP just said she does not know why, neither does she know why left underarm is swollen for last two years. Any response much appreciated.
