After 18 months in remission I have reason to suspect my MPA is biting back. At the moment I'm not sure so, I would welcome anyone else's experience of flares. A few days ago my left hand had a slight numbness and pin pricks in the finger ends. Those symptoms have now gone but the joints in my hand and wrist feel stiff and aching. This is all pretty similar to some of the symptoms before diagnosis. Other than feeling more tired then normal (and that's been going on a few week) there are no other symptoms of vascultis showing ie no night sweats for example. I have called in at my treatment hospital to get a set of blood tests today and I hoping to find out more. The main thing I am concerned about is an attack on my kidneys again. For those of you who have experienced flares is this typical?
